New inflight catering partner Dynasty Restaurant to offer classic, authentic Chinese cuisine in the air
(HONG KONG) Following the start of Dragonair’s 25th anniversary activities earlier in the year, the carrier has announced it has partnered for the first time with the one-star Michelin restaurant Dynasty Restaurant located in the Renaissance Harbour View Hotel Hong Kong, to introduce a new promotional menu of Chinese cuisine.
From mid-April, Dragonair passengers across all cabins on flights from Hong Kong to Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei and Kaohsiung can enjoy dishes from a specially-designed inflight menu created by the Dynasty Restaurant. The new menu will be available until mid April 2011 (see appendix).
