The airline was established in Hong Kong
Hong Kong
on May 24, 1985 on the initiative of Kuang-Piu Chao, the airline's present honorary chairman, as a subsidiary of Hong Kong
Hong Kong
Macau
Macau
International Investment Co. It started operations in July 1985 with a Boeing 737-200
Boeing 737-200
service from Kai Tak International Airport to Kota Kinabalu
Kota Kinabalu
International Airport in Malaysia, after receiving an Air Operator's Certificate
Air Operator's Certificate
(AOC) from the Hong Kong
Hong Kong
Government. The airline began services to Phuket, Thailand, as well as six secondary cities in mainland China
China
on a regular charter basis in 1986. In 1987, the airline became the first Hong Kong-based airline to join as an active member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Dragonair was the first local competitor for Hong Kong's largest airline, Cathay Pacific, in forty years; and since the airline's inception, Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
fought vigorously to block the airline's flight-slot applications. In January 1987, the airline announced its expansion by the order of two long-range McDonnell Douglas MD-11 aircraft. However, after a heated hearing before Hong Kong's Air Transport Licensing Authority, the Hong Kong Government
Hong Kong Government
adopted a one route-one airline policy, which lasted until 2001. The airline was not able to gain the scheduled routes it needed to compete effectively. The airline was disadvantaged in that Hong Kong's financial secretary back then, Sir John Bremridge, was a former Cathay Pacific chairman.[5][6][7] Stephen Miller, Dragonair's first CEO, said:

Our arrival on the scene was not hailed very enthusiastically by the then Hong Kong
Hong Kong
government...we got a lot of opposition from Cathay (Pacific).[7]

It was later discovered that Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
was concentrating on a boom in travel elsewhere in the 1980s, and left the undeveloped mainland China
China
market to Dragonair. Forced into accepting less-desirable routes, the young airline focused on the mainland.[7] 1990s[edit] In January 1990, Cathay Pacific, Swire Group
Swire Group
and CITIC Pacific acquired an 89 percent stake in the airline, with CITIC Pacific holding 38 percent; while the family of the airline's chairman Kuang-Piu Chao reduced their holding from 22 percent to 6 percent, with the remainder held by minor shareholders. The change of ownership saw Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
transferring its Beijing and Shanghai routes to Dragonair, along with a Lockheed L-1011 TriStar
Lockheed L-1011 TriStar
on a lease basis. The first Airbus
Airbus
A320 joined the airline's fleet in March 1993 and by December, there was a total of six A320 aircraft. This was followed by the introduction of the Airbus
Airbus
A330 into the Dragonair's fleet in July 1995.[5][8][9] A further redistribution of shares took place in April 1996, when China
China
National Aviation Corporation purchased 35.86 percent of Dragonair and became the largest shareholder, with Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
and Swire retaining 25.50 percent, CITIC Pacific
CITIC Pacific
retaining 28.50 percent and the Chao family retaining 5.02 percent. CNAC's holding was further increased to 43 percent when it was listed on the Hong Kong
Hong Kong
Stock Exchange on 17 December 1997. On 5 July 1998, Dragonair Flight 841 from Chongqing
Chongqing
was the last scheduled arrival at Kai Tak Airport, landed runway 13 at 15:38 GMT

(23:38 Hong Kong

time).[5][8][10][11] Operational expansion[edit]

Dragonair Boeing 747-400BCF Freighter

In 2000, the airline commenced an all-cargo service to Shanghai, Europe and the Middle East using a leased Boeing 747-200 freighter and a service to Osaka
Osaka
was added in May 2001. The airline purchased two Boeing 747-300 freighters in 2001 and extended freight operations to Xiamen
Xiamen
and Taipei
Taipei
in 2002. The airline's net profits rose 60 percent to HK$540 million in 2002, with cargo operations accounting for 30 percent of revenues; and freight volume increasing nearly 50 percent to 20,095 tonnes.[5][8] All regular flights were converted to scheduled services in March 2000,[clarification needed] with passenger service to Taipei, Bangkok and Tokyo commenced in July 2002, November 2003 and April 2004, respectively. Dragonair Cargo continued to see steady growth and the airline began a Hong Kong–Shanghai freight route on behalf of DHL in June 2003 and leased an Airbus
Airbus
A300 freighter to start a cargo service to Nanjing
Nanjing
in June 2004. A second daily European loop to Frankfurt
Frankfurt
and London, in addition to Manchester
Manchester
and Amsterdam, followed and by mid-2004 the airline had five Boeing 747
Boeing 747
freighters and 26 Airbus passenger aircraft. In a bitter Air Transport Licensing Authority (ATLA) hearings in 2004, Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
applied to fly to three mainland cities to which Dragonair filed an objection, saying the move would have an effect on its very survival.[5][8][12] A new passenger service to Sydney was scheduled to open in the second half of 2005, along with Manila
Manila
and Seoul
Seoul
as the other anticipated destinations. The airline also planned services to the United States in 2005, at first with cargo flights. It was the airline's intention to more than double its freighter fleet to nine Boeing 747s by 2008.[5] Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
takeover[edit] By 2005, Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
owned 18 percent of the airline, with its parent, Swire Pacific owned 7.71 percent; China
China
National Aviation Holding owned 43 percent and CITIC Pacific
CITIC Pacific
owned 28.5 percent. A Hong Kong newspaper[which?] reported that Swire Pacific was in advanced negotiations that would see Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
taking over Dragonair. This was dismissed outright by Tony Tyler, then chief operating officer of Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
who said "We have no plans to change that structure right now... we are happy with the structure of the shareholding in Dragonair at the moment. " Peter Hilton, transport analyst at CSFB, said Tyler's remarks were a "cut and dried" dismissal of the takeover talk.[13] On 28 September 2006, Dragonair became a wholly owned subsidiary of Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
after completion of a major shareholding realignment involving Cathay Pacific, Air China, China
China
National Aviation Corporation Group, CITIC Pacific
CITIC Pacific
and Swire Pacific. Cathay Pacific claimed that Dragonair will continue to operate as a separate airline within the Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
group, maintaining its own Air Operator's Certificate and with the brand unchanged, with 2,976 employees worldwide. However, the airline will be downsized with five percent of the airline staff retrenched or transferred into Cathay Pacific. No Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
staff were to be affected by this announcement.[14][15][16][17] By 2009, services to Bangkok
Bangkok
and Tokyo; and the expansion plans to introduce services to Sydney, Seoul
Seoul
and the United States have been cancelled and terminated. In addition, the planned nine-aircraft freight operation has also been eliminated, with three Boeing 747-400BCF freighters transferred to its parent fleet while the two remaining parked at Southern California Logistics Airport
Southern California Logistics Airport
in Victorville, California.[18][19][20][21] Service integration[edit] Dragonair's own loyalty program, The Elite, that was launched on 12 February 2001, was merged into Cathay Pacific's The Marco Polo Club from 1 January 2007. Existing Elite members were offered similar membership by The Marco Polo Club.[8][18][22] On 1 August 2007, the airline opened a joint regional office with Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
in Beijing, that featured a dedicated area for the airline and its parent, and joined the Oneworld
Oneworld
alliance as an affiliated member on 1 November, which its parent is a founding member.[23][24] In addition, they opened the first airline-branded arrival lounge, The Arrival, at Hong Kong International Airport on 1 October 2008.[8] The airline's ground handling services subsidiary, Hong Kong International Airport
Hong Kong International Airport
Services Ltd (HIAS), was merged with Hong Kong Airport Services Ltd (HAS) on 1 November 2008 and became a wholly owned subsidiary of Cathay Pacific on 1 December 2008. In January 2016, Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
announced it was rebranding Dragonair as Cathay Dragon.[25] The Cathay Dragon
Cathay Dragon
brand became active on 21 November 2016.[26] Destinations[edit] Further information: List of Cathay Dragon

Airbus
A330-300 (B-HYQ), the first aircraft wearing the new livery released in 2016

The airline's original livery consists of a thick red-colored horizontal strip along a white-colored fuselage with a red-colored vertical stabiliser. The airline's traditional Chinese and English name and its logo are in gold color and are painted on the forward fuselage above the red horizontal strip and on the vertical stabiliser, respectively. The previous livery is in white color with a red dragon on the cowling and on the vertical stabiliser; and the airline's name written in Chinese red lettering and in English black lettering above and below the front passenger windows, respectively. In addition, there is a 30 cm Oneworld
Oneworld
logo next to the first left door and a Swire Group logo on the aft of the aircraft.[33] On 5 May 2005, Dragonair celebrated its 20th Anniversary with a new Airbus
Airbus
A330-300 (B-HWG) painted in a special livery. The work of art took 14 months to realise, from design tender to completed image. The special livery featured a waterside view with a junk and fishes leaping out of the water at the front of the aircraft; a red dragon spread across the fuselage in the daylight; and children playing with traditional Chinese lanterns by the waterside of an ancient village on the left side of the aircraft, representing the past. It also featured a waterside view with a Star Ferry
Star Ferry
at front of the aircraft; and a red dragon spread across the fuselage in the Hong Kong
Hong Kong
night sky, representing the present. Stanley Hui, Dragonair's CEO at the time, described the special livery "embodies the spirit of the Chinese dragons of old – a spirit that aspires to excellence".[34][35] The aircraft was removed from service in February 2013, at the expiration of its lease. In 2016, Cathay Pacific, Dragonair's parent company, announced that they would be re-branding Dragonair to Cathay Dragon. For this change, a new livery has been adopted. The new livery is similar to Cathay Pacific's new livery in the tail logo and font. The major difference is instead of the Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
green theme, it has a light maroon theme. The titles say Cathay Dragon
Cathay Dragon
along with Chinese lettering reading the name. Dragonair's Dragon logo has been retained and appears next to the cockpit windows. Airbus
