[photopress:dragonair.jpg,full,alignright]Hong Kong-based Dragonair, which is associated with Cathay Pacific and was originally established in May 1985, plans to expand to a number of major destinations throughout China.
Kenny Tang , chief executive officer of Dragonair, said as part of an effort by the airline to strengthen its network, the company will soon begin offering travel services to several extra top Chinese destinations.
He said, ‘We are pleased to bring more flexibility and convenience for mainland travelers. The addition of these extra services gives travelers more options, while we can help attract more mainland tourists to visit Hong Kong and boost the economy.’
The airline fully joined the Cathay Pacific Group last September although Cathay had an involvement for some years before that. In 2006 tourism in Hong Kong increased 8.4% as more than 13.5 million travelers arrived from mainland China.
