Hong Kong - Hong Kong-based airline Dragonair is pleased with the government's future investment plans to enhance the country's status as a logistics centre and regional aviation hub.

The Budget speech made by John Tsang, Hong Kong's financial secretary, also mentioned the government's plans to continue investing heavily in infrastructure, further promoting cooperation in business and professional services between mainland China and Hong Kong.

Dragonair has expressed its approval on the government's decision to keep the development of Hong Kong's trading and logistics, financial services, business and professional services, and tourism as top priority.

The airline also appreciates the emphasis put on the long-term strategy for the development of the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

"We are pleased that the financial secretary has addressed the need to ensure that the handling capacity of HKIA can match the ever-increasing air traffic demand. We believe that there is an urgent need for a third runway in response to airport capacity constraints and fierce competition from neighbouring hubs," Patrick Yeung, CEO of Dragonair, said.

He added that the airline is committed to linking the region through premium flight services and training young talents to contribute to the local aviation industry.
