Cathay Pacific USA Flights Provide Convenient Connections to Dragonair’s New Twice Daily Guangzhou Service

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Beginning September 14, 2009, North American passengers traveling to Guangzhou will be able to make the entire journey by air thanks to new service being launched by Cathay Pacific’s sister airline, Dragonair.

Cathay Pacific’s flights from the United States will provide easy connections to the new Dragonair flights via its hub at Hong Kong International Airport.

“The Pearl River Delta – and Guangzhou in particular – continues to be an increasingly important destination for North American businesspeople,” said Dennis Owen, Cathay Pacific’s vice president – Marketing, Americas. “With our sister airline, Dragonair, soon offering twice daily service to Guangzhou, our passengers will be able to connect directly to the Pearl River Delta by air.”

Part of the Cathay Pacific Group, Dragonair will operate the new services to Guangzhou (airport code CAN) using Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft. Both airplanes feature Business Class and Economy Class seating. The flight schedule for the new service is as follows (all times local):

Flight   Route   Departs   Arrives   Frequency
KA782 HKG-CAN 8:35a 9:25a Daily
KA783 CAN-HKG 10:15a 11:15a Daily
KA786 HKG-CAN 8:40p 9:30p Daily
KA789 CAN-HKG 10:25p 11:25p Daily

Overnight USA flights inbound to Hong Kong will provide convenient connections to Guangzhou via the morning departure. Conversely, the first departure from Guangzhou will connect nicely with the afternoon departures back to North America. Additional connections are available via the evening flights.

Subject to government approval, Cathay Pacific will codeshare on these new services.

The new flights will be Dragonair’s first flights into the Pearl River Delta. Dragonair serves an extensive China network offering additional flights to popular Southeast Asian destinations such as Hanoi, Vietnam, and Phuket, Thailand. Dragonair was voted Best Regional Airline: Southeast Asia in Skytrax’s World Airline Survey.
