Dragonair Named 'Best Regional Airline: SE Asia' in Skytrax Survey

Dragonair has been voted "Best Regional Airline: SE Asia" in the annual World Airline Survey™ run by Skytrax. This is the first time the carrier has won in this category.

Over 15 million travellers of 97 different passenger nationalities voted in the survey which was carried out between August 2007 and June 2008. Award winners are determined by measuring passenger satisfaction over 40 product and service factors covering the experience on the ground and at the airport, onboard product and onboard service.

"It is a great honour for the airline to receive this award. It shows that Dragonair is being recognised not only in Mainland China - our key market - but also in Southeast Asia. This is a resounding recognition of our product and service quality both inflight and on the ground. Credit must go to all our staff for working to provide the very best service experience," said Dragonair Chief Executive Officer Kenny Tang.

"On behalf of everyone at Dragonair I would like to thank all those travellers who voted for us. This will certainly encourage us to aim for even greater heights to ensure that Dragonair becomes the airline of choice in every market we serve."

Dragonair has long been regarded as the expert in connecting the world with Mainland China. The airline was recently honoured at the Yahoo! Emotive Brand Awards 2007-2008 for the third year in a row and was also voted "Best Asian Airline" at the 2007 annual Hurun Report Best of the Best Awards earlier this year.

Dragonair has significantly enhanced its network since become part of the Cathay Pacific Group in September 2006, adding a total of eight destinations. The airline works to connect people from major regional destinations to the Mainland through the Hong Kong hub, and also provides smooth connections to the extensive international network of its sister airline.

Dragonair, an affiliate member of oneworld, is a Hong Kong-based airline operating a fleet of 32 passenger aircraft and six freighters serving 33 regional destinations, including 20 cities in Mainland China. Dragonair is part of the Cathay Pacific Group, providing seamless connectivity for passengers to more than 100 cities around the globe.
