(HONG KONG) Dragonair today announced that its new four-times-weekly service to Kolkata will launch on 2 November, offering more travel choices and greater convenience for passengers travelling between Hong Kong and Eastern India. The new service will be 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.

Meanwhile, in view of the growing demand, Dragonair will also turn the Chiang Mai seasonal service into a year-round scheduled service. The airline launched the direct non-stop service to the popular leisure destination in July.

Since April, Dragonair has launched or resumed services to Xi’an, Guilin, Jeju, Taichung, Clark in the Philippines and Chiang Mai, and a daily service to Haikou will resume on 28 October. Kolkata will be the eighth destination added to the airline’s network this year.
