Dragonair will add its second passenger destination in India, launching a new service to Kolkata. The airline already operates a daily service to Bengaluru (Bangalore).

Subject to government approval and date of opening of the new airport terminal, the service to Kolkata will commence in winter 2012 with four flights a week operated by Airbus A320 aircraft.

Travellers can connect through the Hong Kong hub to and from Dragonair’s Mainland China network as well as destinations in North America and Australia through seamless connections on the extensive global network of sister airline Cathay Pacific.

Dragonair Chief Executive Officer Patrick Yeung said: “The launch of a new service to Kolkata marks an important step in building Dragonair’s presence in the Indian market, following the launch of flights to Bengaluru in 2008. India is one of the major economies in Asia and the country has an increasing influence on the world stage.

The flight schedules are as follows (all times are local and subject to government approval):

Wed, Fri, Sat, Sun
Mon, Thu, Sat, Sun

* Schedules may change without prior notice

Kolkata will be the seventh destination to be launched or resumed by Dragonair this year. Since April, the airline has already resumed or launched scheduled services to Xi’an, Guilin, Jeju and Taichung. It will launch scheduled services to Clark in the Philippines later this month and Chiang Mai in Thailand in July.
