Publication Date : 10-03-2014
Hong Kong-based carrier, Dragonair, has announced that it will commence a twice-weekly service to Denpasar, Bali, starting April 27, 2014.
“This adds one of the world’s most popular leisure destinations to Dragonair’s growing network and provides a new travel option for its passengers. Denpasar will become Dragonair’s first destination in Indonesia and will be the 15th destination to have been launched or resumed by the airline since April 2012,” Dragonair states in its official website.
An Airbus A330-300 aircraft in a two-class configuration, featuring the airline’s new Business Class and Economy Class cabins, will operate Dragonair’s Denpasar service. The provisional schedule indicates that the route will be served on Thursdays and Sundays.
“We are very excited about launching flights to Denpasar. 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,” Dragonair Chief Executive Officer Patrick Yeung said as quoted in the statement.
Dragonair is a subsidiary of Hong Kong’s flag carrier, Cathay Pacific, and is an affiliate member of the Oneworld airline alliance. Cathay Pacific currently operates a daily service between Hong Kong and Bali.
Other airlines currently serving the route include Garuda Indonesia, Hong Kong Airlines, and Tigerair Mandala.
