%2017 %08 %16


DRAGONAIR has commenced twice-daily service from Hong Kong to Taichung, a city in west-central Taiwan, operated using an Airbus A320 aircraft.

The company celebrated the launch of the service by holding a cocktail party in Taichung attended by 100 guests, including Jason Hu, the Mayor of Taichung and John Leung, Director of the Hong Kong Economic, Trade & Cultural Office.

Speaking at the reception, the airline's chief executive officer Patrick Yeung said: "Taiwan is a very important market for Dragonair and the Taichung service will further boost traffic between Taiwan and Hong Kong. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the authorities in both locations for their great support in getting our Taichung operation up and running smoothly.

"2012 is an exciting year for Dragonair as we expand our network through the addition of at least seven destinations. In addition to Taichung, we have already launched a new service to Jeju in Korea and resumed flights to Xi'an and Guilin."

He said the airline has started new services to Clark in the Philippines on May 29, Chiang Mai in Thailand in July, and Kolkata, India, this winter.

Before the launch of this new service, the carrier had operated a charter service to Taichung between 2007 and 2009. The airline now operates 77 passenger services out of Taiwan every week to the three major cities of Taipei, Kaohsiung and Taichung.
