Dragonair Supports Government Internship Programme for University Graduates with Discount Fares

Dragonair today announced that it will support the Internship Programme for University Graduates, organised by the Labour Department of the HKSAR government, by offering special fares for programme participants who need to travel to Mainland China for their placements.

Dragonair is offering a special round-trip fare of HK$880 to nine Mainland destinations - Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Chongqing, Fuzhou, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Ningbo and Qingdao - for programme participants who need to travel for their internship positions. The offer period runs from August 1, 2009 to July 31, 2010.

"We are delighted to be one of the companies supporting the Internship Programme for University Graduates," says Dragonair Chief Executive Officer Kenny Tang. "The tough times being experienced as part of the current economic downturn make it all the more imperative for us to support initiatives that will help young people pursue their careers. Dragonair will continue to support programmes that help the next generation contribute to the long-term success of Hong Kong and Mainland China."

The programme, which aims to address the needs of university graduates in acquiring qualities, building up vision and gaining experience for developing their career and enriching their life, is being widely supported by major companies in Hong Kong and the Mainland. A substantial number of training positions in the internship programme are being offered in major cities across the Mainland.
