Dragonair is to increase the number of weekly scheduled freighter flights between Hong Kong and Frankfurt to four, from the present three services, from April 9, 2006. Dragonair which operates the services using Boeing 747s, is planning to increase the flights to meet the growing market demands.
"The launch of this additional flight to Frankfurt reflects growing demand for our services, and will give Dragonair customers more options and greater flexibility," Dragonair General Manager (Cargo) Albert Yau said in a press release.
"Demand for shipments from Far East to Germany is particularly strong, and given Dragonair's unique network in China we are well-placed to serve this," he added.
Dragonair operates services to Frankfurt from its home base, Hong Kong. Its cargo volume also rose 14.1 per cent in February on a year-on-year basis, with the carrier shipping 24,678 tonne last year. During the first two months of this year, Dragonair cargo volume rose 9 per cent over the same period a year ago.
