Dragonair Extends New Check-in Service from Shenzhen Downtown

(HONG KONG) Dragonair passengers can now enjoy greater convenience by checking in at the Shenzhen Kingkey Banner Center, before taking cross-boundary land transportation to Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

Upon arrival at the airport in Hong Kong, passengers with baggage can go straight to the Dragonair Self Check-in Bag Drop counter. Those without check-in baggage can proceed straight through to Immigration, speeding up the process of getting to their flight. Passengers departing from Shenzhen will need to arrive at the downtown check-in counter at least 150 minutes before the scheduled departure time of their flight.

The Shenzhen downtown check-in service represents a further extension of the existing "upstream" check-in service which is available to Dragonair passengers check in at Shenzhen International Airport, and those travelling between Shekou, Fuyong, Humen, Macau and HKIA's SkyPier by cross-boundary ferry for Dragonair's flight departing from Hong Kong.

This new service will help to further strengthen Hong Kong's dual role as a gateway to the Mainland and leading international aviation hub by creating seamless connections between the Pearl River Delta region and international flights departing from Hong Kong.

Dragonair Chief Executive Officer Kenny Tang said: "The new service represents another step forward in our existing upstream check-in services. It strengthens transportation links across the border providing travellers from cities in the Pearl River Delta a quick and convenient way to reach international destinations via Hong Kong."

Dragonair, an affiliate member of oneworld, is a Hong Kong-based airline operating a fleet of 32 passenger aircraft and serving 34 regional destinations, including 20 cities in Mainland China. Dragonair has been recognised for its product and service quality, and was voted "Best Regional Airline: SE Asia" in the annual World Airline Survey run by Skytrax in 2007/08. Dragonair is part of the Cathay Pacific Group, providing seamless connectivity for passengers to more than 100 cities around the globe.
