Dragonair is headquartered at Hong Kong International Airport, from where it serves the People’s Republic of China and an extensive Asian network. The airline is a subsidiary of Cathay Pacific and an affiliate member of the Oneworld Alliance.

Dragonair has codeshare agreements with Cathay Pacific, Air China, Malaysia Airlines and Royal Brunei Airlines.

Hong Kong – Asia’s hub

The Hong Kong International Airport is one of the world’s busiest and most efficient airports.

The airport is connected to an equally efficient transport network including: Airport Express links between the central business district and the airport; taxis; coaches and limousines.

Travellers can connect to mainland China via the SKYPier ferry service. Tickets are purchased at the Arrivals level of the Airport (transit area), before immigration.  Anyone intending to travel on to China via the ferry service is urged to ensure they leave at least 2 hours between arrival at the airport and the scheduled ferry departure. Passengers must have a valid visa for China.

Dragonair casts its net across Asia

Dragonair specialises in the mainland Chinese and niche Asian markets. Its regional operations are supported by Cathay Pacific’s international network. 

Dragonair also codeshares with Cathay Pacific on the Taipei, Kaoshiung, Manila and Phnom Penh routes. Additional codeshare agreements exist with: Air China, for flights to and from Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Dalian and Tianjin; Malaysia Airlines on flights to and from Kota Kinabalu, and Royal Brunei Airlines on flights to and from Bandar Seri Begawan.

Cathay Pacific operates daily flights between Auckland and Hong Kong, from where passengers are able to feed into Dragonair’s regional network.

Dragonair’s wings

Dragonair’s fleet is made up of Airbus A320-200s, A321-200s and A330-300s.

First class seating on the A330-300s is in a 2-2-2 layout and luxuriously designed. The seats adjust down to the lie-flat position, offer lumbar support, headrest, leg and footrests, an individual reading light and personal storage space. Each seat has its own screen with a choice of five channels and 16 audio channels. Each seat has its own 110V AC in-seat power supply for laptops and portable electronic devices.

Business Class varies depending on the aircraft. Some of the A330-300s have the cradle style seating, with a 45” pitch and a personal TV screen with power points. The younger aircraft are fitted with seating that reclines at 63” near flat-bed. These seats are nearly 27” wide, fitted with personal screens and reading lights, computer sockets and lumbar support.  All seats have 110V power points, and TV screens are mounted on the ceiling or bulkhead.

The A320-200s and A321-200s have standard-issue Business Class quality. Both styles of craft have 110V in-seat power, but only the A321 has an entertainment system and that is via overhead screens.

Catering services for Business Class is all on exclusively designed Wedgewood china, with a choice of two or three main courses.

On short-haul flights, Economy Class on the A320 has standard seating and no entertainment system, the A321 offers a larger seat and entertainment is via overhead screens with 16 audio channels. Economy Class on the A330s has a seat pitch ranging between 31-33” and 18” wide with a 6” recline. Entertainment is via overhead screens and audio channels.

Catering depends on the length of flight – you’ll either get snack boxes or a full meal with a choice of two menus.

Join the Club: travel with Marco Polo, accrue Asia Miles

Dragonair shares loyalty and travel reward programs with Cathay Pacific.

The Marco Polo Club is divided into four tiers of membership: Green (at entry level), Silver, Gold and Diamond. There is a joining fee. Club members earn Miles and Sectors on eligible fare classes with Dragonair, Cathay Pacific and other Oneworld members. This travel is used to calculate the member’s eligibility for membership renewals, upgrades or downgrades during the membership year.

Asia Miles is a traditional rewards program, in which Mileage Credits are accumulated on Dragonair, Cathay Pacific or other partner airlines. Credits can also be earned by spending with partner hotels, credit card companies, car rental agencies and other non-airline channels. These miles are then redeemed against flights, upgrades or selected products and services. There is no membership fee for Asia Miles, however, membership can be suspended after 36 months of inactivity and closed once all remaining mileage credits have expired.

Dragonair utilises the Cathay Pacific lounges wherever available. Eligible passengers include First and Business travellers, members of The Marco Polo Club and Oneworld Frequent Flyers.
