DRAGONAIR SEES DOUBLE-DIGIT INCREASE IN AUGUST CARGO
Dragonair, the Hong Kong-based airline, posted double-digit increases in cargo traffic in August, on both a year-on-year and month-on-month basis.
The airline handled 17,000 tons for the month, up 65 percent over the same month in 2001 and about 10 percent over July 2002.
Dragonair said it saw increased demand in the Pearl River Delta and eastern China areas, in particular. “It’s a very encouraging result as we head into the traditionally busier part of the year,” said Stanley Hui, chief executive officer of Dragonair.
Dragonair's freighter network connects Europe, the Middle East, Japan, Taiwan, and China.
