Dragonir to start daily KK-HK flights April 3


KOTA KINABALU: Dragonair yesterday announced that it will increase its services between Kota Kinabalu and Hong Kong from the current six weekly flights to daily flights from April 3, 2013.

The latest service enhancement will further strengthen the airline’s network and offer more choice and convenience to passengers travelling to and from Malaysia.

Since the start of Dragonair’s service to Kota Kinabalu in 1985, the airline has seen continuous growth in the popularity of Sabah as a holiday destination. The daily service will help to attract more overseas visitors to experience the city’s mix of natural and cultural attractions.

Dragonair Manager Sabah, Sarawak and Brunei, Anna Choi, said: “The frequency increase will enable Dragonair passengers to enjoy wider choice and more flexibility when travelling between Malaysia and Hong Kong. In addition to connecting passengers from around the world into Kota Kinabalu, we also offer Malaysians more options when connecting to Dragonair’s extensive Mainland China network or the international network of Cathay Pacific through our Hong Kong hub.”

Commencing April 3, the new flight, KA064, will depart Kota Kinabalu International Airport at 20:35 and arrive in Hong Kong at 23:35. The return flight, KA065, will depart Hong Kong at 16:40 and arrive in Kota Kinabalu at 19:40.

In conjunction with this announcement, Dragonair is offering a special introductory fare from only RM330 to Hong Kong for departure on the new Wednesday flight. The offer is for a limited period only and the promotion ends on March 18 2013. Passengers can purchase the ticket via, or by calling Dragonair Kota Kinabalu at 088-254733.
