Dragonair cancels Bangkok services

Dragonair has confirmed that it will be cancelling services to Bangkok with effect from September 27th - the day before the new airport in Bangkok, Suvarnabhumi, opens.The airline cited commercial reasons for the decision.

“Hong Kong-Bangkok is a very busy, competitive route, and it has not been performing to expectations for some time,” said CEO Kenny Tang. “That is why we have taken the decision to cancel the service.”

He said alternative arrangements would be made for customers booked on the airline’s flights to Bangkok or Hong Kong after September 27, but no further clarification was given.

“We will be ensuring passengers get to their destination with the minimum of inconvenience,” Mr. Tang said.
