Dragonair’s New Services to Kolkata in Winter 2012

The sister airline Cathay Pacific, Dragonair has declared its plans to launch new flight service to the important commercial and financial hub of Kolkata. This is airline’s second destination in India after Bengaluru.

The airline’s press release says that this flight to India connecting Kolkata will be launched in winter 2012, subject to government permission and the opening dates of the Kolkata’s new airport terminal.

Dragonair’s new service will provide better connections and greater convenience the flyers planning to travel between Hong Kong and India.

Patrick Yeung, Chief Executive Officer, Dragonair showed his contentment on this new service and expressed that this move will perhaps help the airline in enhancing its presence in the Indian market and stirring Hong Kong’s role as a leading international aviation hub.

Dragonair’s Flight KA168 is scheduled to depart Hong Kong at 22:25 and arrive at the Kolkata International Airport at 00:15 on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The return Flight KA169 will depart Kolkata at 01:15 and land in Hong Kong at 07:25 on Monday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.

With multiple services of Dragonair per week, travellers just might be able to net tickets on cheap flights to India from Hong Kong and vice versa.

Kolkata will be the seventh destination of the airline launched or resumed by Dragonair in 2012. The airline has already resumed or launched scheduled flights to Xi’an, Guilin, Jeju and Taichung since April this year. The airline will roll out scheduled services to Clark in the Philippines later this month and Chiang Mai in Thailand in July 2012.
