Cathay Dragon said today it will begin a new four-times-weekly service between Hong Kong and Jinan, the capital of Shandong province, from March 26.
A historic and picturesque home to over seven million residents, Jinan is one of eastern China’s major administrative, economic and transportation centres. It has also become a popular tourism destination and is revered for the 72 natural artesian springs in the area.
The new service, which will complement the airline’s existing flights to Qingdao, will be operated by the airline’s fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft in a two-class configuration.
In January, the carrier began flights to Nanning in Guangxi.
