Cathay Dragon will be suspending its Hong Kong-Tokyo Haneda service in October, a representative from the company has confirmed with Business Traveller Asia-Pacific.

The airline’s daily KA396/KA397 Airbus A320 service will be suspended following its last scheduled flights on October 28 and 29, respectively.

However, Cathay Dragon’s parent airline Cathay Pacific will continue to offer a twice-daily service between Hong Kong and Tokyo Haneda. Cathay Pacific also operates four flights daily between Hong Kong and Tokyo Narita Airport.

According to the Cathay Dragon spokesperson, the service is being suspended for commercial reasons: “Tokyo has always been and will remain an important travel market as it is a popular destination for both business and leisure travellers… We will also continue to study the latest market situation and adjust our schedule and capacity accordingly.”
