Dragonair is scheduled to launch four daily flights between Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur in early 2017, taking over Cathay Pacific’s current regular services to the Malaysian capital. The route change will see a major expansion in Dragonair’s existing Malaysian network, which currently consists of 11 weekly flights to Penang and five weekly services to Kota Kinabalu in Sabah. Soon to be rebranded as “Cathay Dragon”, Dragonair will also be receiving five Airbus A330 jets from its sister company, as part of the Cathay Pacific Group’s brand association and business growth strategy. While these changes will strengthen the relationship between the two airlines, they will continue to operate separately, with Cathay Pacific expanding its own fleet and network in Europe.
