Dragonair Reschedules Launch of Service to Bengaluru (Bangalore)

(Hong Kong) Dragonair today announced it will reschedule the launch of its new service to Bengaluru (Bangalore), India, with the first flight now operating on May 24 instead of the original launch date of May 1. The rescheduling is the result of an Indian Civil Aviation Ministry decision to postpone the opening of the new Bengaluru International Airport until May 10/11.

Alternative arrangements are now being made for customers who made bookings on Dragonair's flights to and from Bengaluru (Bangalore) before May 24, helping to ensure they get to their destination with the minimum of inconvenience.

The Bengaluru (Bangalore) launch marks the first time for Dragonair to operate flights to India. The service - a daily flight operated by an A330-300 aircraft - will open up new opportunities for people travelling between Hong Kong and the thriving southern region of India, helping to boost Hong Kong's position as a leading international aviation hub.

Dragonair, an affiliate member of oneworld, is a Hong Kong-based airline operating a fleet of 31 passenger aircraft and eight freighters serving 34 regional destinations, including 21 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.
