Dragonair has announced that it will operate an extra service between Kolkata and Hong Kong from October 4, 2013. The additional service will bring the total number of flights between the two cities from four to five flights per week, giving passengers greater flexibility for travel to Hong Kong and onward to other destinations through the extensive global network of Dragonair and its sister airline, Cathay Pacific.
Flights from Kolkata to Hong Kong were launched in November 2012. Dragonair and Cathay Pacific will now operate a total of 47 passenger flights and 21 freighter flights per week between Hong Kong and six major gateways in India including Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
Dragonair General Manager South Asia, Middle East and Africa, Charlie Stewart-Cox said: “The response to our Kolkata service has been very promising. Our extra flight will offer travellers from India more options and greater convenience when travelling to Hong Kong and enable them to connect seamlessly with flights to more than 170 destinations in the Dragonair and Cathay Pacific network.”
