Dragonair reduces flights to Taiwan

Travel News Asia 28 April 2003

Dragonair has said it will further reduce flights to Taipei and Kaohsiung from April 29 following the decision by the Taiwan authorities to quarantine passengers arriving from Hong Kong for 10 days.

The airlines Taipei services will operate once a day instead of three times a day, and its services to Kaohsiung will operate once a day, down from twice a day.

"We regret the decision by the Taiwan authorities to introduce such a quarantine measure, as all possible precautions are being taken in Hong Kong to prevent travellers with SARS symptoms from flying," said Stanley Hui, Dragonair's Chief Executive Officer. "The quarantine decision will naturally result in a further reduction in demand for travel to Taiwan, and we are therefore scaling back our services accordingly."
