dragonairDragonair announced today that it will commence a twice-weekly service between Hong Kong and Hiroshima in Japan starting 16 August 2015 (subject to government approval), strengthening the airline’s network in Asia and further boosting its presence in Japan. Dragonair will be the only carrier offering a non-stop service between Hong Kong and Hiroshima.

 

The city will become Dragonair’s fourth destination in Japan, joining Tokyo (Haneda), Fukuoka and Okinawa in its network. Flights to Hiroshima will be departing from Hong Kong on Thursday and Sunday, operated by the airline’s fleet of Airbus A321 aircraft in a two-class configuration.

 

Dragonair Chief Executive Officer Algernon Yau said: “We are very pleased to add Hiroshima to our growing Asia network. Japan has long been a popular destination among the Hong Kong travelling public and this new service will cater to the growing demand for both leisure and commercial traffic. The launch of the Hiroshima service highlights Dragonair’s commitment to developing a comprehensive network in Asia and, at the same time, strengthening Hong Kong’s position as one of the region’s key aviation hubs.”

 

With this new service, Dragonair and sister airline Cathay Pacific will operate more than 140 flights a week to eight destinations in Japan, including Tokyo (Narita), Tokyo (Haneda), Osaka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Fukuoka, Okinawa and Hiroshima.

 

The schedule for the Hong Kong (HKG) – Hiroshima (HIJ) service from 16 August 2015 is as follows (all times local, subject to government approval):

KA350 HKG-HIJ 1310 1745 Thursday
