Dragonair boosts summer services
(HONG KONG): Dragonair will increase frequencies on its services to a number of destinations in Mainland China and within the region this summer in order to meet seasonal demand. The increased frequencies are effective from March 28 to October 23, 2010.
From May 1, the number of flights to Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, will rise from daily to 10 per week. The additional frequencies will offer more convenience and improved connectivity for passengers travelling through the Hong Kong hub, especially from key markets such as Europe and North America.
The summer schedule will also see increases in services to the Mainland, with the number of flights to Nanjing and Chengdu rising to 14 and 12 per week respectively. Services to Changsha and Chongqing will rise to daily. In addition, one of the daily flights to Phnom Penh and two flights to Fuzhou each week will be upgraded and operated by an A330 aircraft, providing more capacity to meet growing demand.
“Demand for both business and leisure travel has started to pick up, particularly in the Mainland China market,” said Chief Executive Officer James Tong. “The summer period is traditionally a peak season for travel. The additional flights provide passengers with more choices and at the same time boost Hong Kong’s position as the premier gateway for travellers heading to the Mainland.”
