Dragonair says it welcomes the Air Services Arrangement (ASA) signed today between Hong Kong and Taiwan.
The ASA signifies a new milestone for the development of air services between Hong Kong and Taiwan. Dragonair believes the ASA will not only allow room to increase flights, capacity and destinations, but also encourage and stimulate traffic between the two places which will bring additional benefits and advantages for both.
Dragonair operates a total of nine daily flights to Taiwan - three to Taipei and six to Kaohsiung. With the airline’s current network which covers key Asian destinations combined with the international network of sister airline Cathay Pacific, Dragonair believes the ASA will offer greater opportunities in strengthening the Cathay Pacific Group’s connectivity worldwide as well as Hong Kong’s position as an aviation hub.
Dragonair, an affiliate member of oneworld, is a Hong Kong-based airline operating a fleet of 32 passenger aircraft and serving 33 regional destinations, including 17 cities in Mainland China.
