  • Dragonair has resumed flights after over 12 years between Hong Kong (HKG) and Hiroshima (HIJ). On 16 August the regional subsidiary of Cathay Pacific Airways began twice-weekly flights (Thursdays and Sundays) on the 2,290-kilometre route using its A321s. No other carrier serves this route with non-stop flights. This becomes Dragonair’s fourth route to Japan as it already serves Fukuoka, Okinawa and Tokyo Haneda. Between them Dragonair and Cathay Pacific now operate a total of 152 flights per week between Hong Kong and eight destinations in Japan.
