Dragonair Welcomes Extension of Discount on Landing and Parking Charges at Hong Kong International Airport

Dragonair welcomes the decision by the Airport Authority Hong Kong to extend the 10% discount on landing and parking charges at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) for another three months, beginning January 1, 2010.

Dragonair Chief Executive Officer James Tong said: "As one of Hong Kong's major home-based carriers, Dragonair welcomes this decision which will help airlines deal with the difficult operating environment brought about by the global economic downturn. All airlines using Hong Kong International Airport will benefit from the extended discounts and the decision will also help Hong Kong maintain its position as a premier regional aviation hub.

"While it is too early to say that the industry has recovered from the downturn, this decision will definitely lend support to all operators at a time when they face unfavourable factors such as continuing low yields and rising fuel prices."

Dragonair, an affiliate member of oneworld, is a Hong Kong-based airline operating a fleet of 30 passenger aircraft and serving 29 regional destinations, including 17 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.
