- Dragonair has joined its sister airline Cathay Pacific Airways in linking Hong Kong (HKG) with Denpasar (DPS) in Bali, Indonesia. On 27 April the airline began twice-weekly (Thursdays and Sundays) flights using its A330-300s on the 3,440-kilometre route. Apart from Cathay Pacific which operates daily flights, passengers are also served by Hong Kong Airlines (21 weekly flights), as well as Garuda Indonesia and Tigerair Mandala, who both operate daily flights. Dragonair Chief Executive Officer Patrick Yeung said at the launch of the route in March: “We are very excited about launching flights to Denpasar and being able to further expand our presence in Asia. We look forward to welcoming passengers on board to experience our award-winning service and products. This new service will provide customers with greater choice and convenience at the same time as bolstering Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s leading aviation hubs.”
