Dragonair starts codeshare with Air China

Travel News Asia 16 February 2004

Travellers have even greater access to the China Mainland with Dragonair following the signing of a codeshare agreement with Air China. The agreement covers the cities of Chengdu, Chongqing, Dalian, and Tianjin.

Dragonair operates services to Chengdu, Chongqing and Dalian seven times, three times and two times a week, respectively. It does not currently fly to Tianjin.

As a result of the agreement which comes into effect today, Dragonair's "KA" code will now be added to the flights operated by Air China: eight services a week to Chengdu; Chongqing, four times a week; Dalian, five times a week; and Tianjin seven times a week. 

"This agreement strengthens Dragonair's unique China Mainland service and expands the number of flight options available to our customers," said Chief Executive Officer Stanley Hui.

"With the launch of codeshare services to Tianjin, Dragonair's Mainland network increases to 21 cities, while the travelling public has even greater flexibility when visiting the four cities covered by the agreement. Passengers holding a Dragonair ticket can choose to fly out on a flight operated by Dragonair and return on one of the codeshare flights operated by Air China, or vice versa."

The agreement with Air China is the second codeshare arrangement that Dragonair has with a Mainland airline. On December 1, 2003, Guangzhou was added to Dragonair's network through a codeshare arrangement with China Southern Airlines.
