Launching on 29 March 2015, the new service will depart Hong Kong International Airport at 1810, arriving in the Japanese capital at 2330. The return flight will then leave Haneda at 0145, getting back into HKIA at 0530.
While the flights will mark Dragonair’s debut in Tokyo, they will run alongside the existing 49 weekly services to the Japanese capital operated by sister airline Cathay Pacific, including twice daily flights to Haneda.
“We are very pleased to add Tokyo to our growing Asia network,” said Dragonair’s CEO, Algernon Yau. “Japan’s capital has long been an important destination for Hong Kong people, for both business and leisure travel, and we believe our new service will provide passengers with a wider choice of travel options.
“It also demonstrates our ongoing commitment to strengthening Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s great international aviation hubs,” he added.
All the new Haneda flights will be operated using the airline’s two-class Airbus A320.
