Stronger together

The new, closer partnership of our two premium airlines offers a better, smoother, and more integrated travel experience for our passengers. 

When you fly with Cathay Dragon from Mainland China or other regional Asian destinations, you can seamlessly connect in Hong Kong with Cathay Pacific's extended global network. Together, we fly to 180 destinations around the world.  

With a shared commitment to service, design, reassurance, and wellness, both Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon make the same promise to their passengers of enabling a Life Well Travelled.

Shared spirit of excellence

Both Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon will deliver the same world-class standards and premium inflight experience – each airline with its own distinct personality.
Cabins

Cabins

While aircraft interiors and seat design will now be consistent across both airlines, Cathay Dragon’s contemporary Chinese design accents will provide a signature cabin experience. You’ll encounter a newly designed range of products, including lotus-patterned packaging, stationery, playing cards, sim card holders, and postcards, all unique to the new brand. An updated selection of pillows and blankets – now adorned with a Cathay Dragon trim – are softer and more comfortable.

Cuisine

Cuisine

Cathay Dragon will continue to draw upon its Chinese heritage with an inflight menu of seasonal specialities, such as Shanghainese hairy crab roe and winter hot pot. There’s a fresh focus on local snacks, including with upcoming offerings including pineapple buns, egg tarts, and milk tea – and in 2017, a special collaboration with Chef Nic Cookies, whose flavours are inspired Chef Nic Cookies – baked in flavours inspired by beloved Hong Kong cafés known as cha chaan teng.

Logo and livery

Logo and livery

Both airlines feature the iconic brushwing on the aircraft tail fins, with each airline featuring its defining colour scheme – red for Cathay Dragon and green for Cathay Pacific. The brushwing will now also appear on uniform accessories for both cabin crew and pilots of Cathay Dragon. Meanwhile, the iconic logo of a dragon in flight has been subtly updated to reflect the brand's contemporary Chinese design philosophy, and will appear on the nose of every aircraft.

Shared lounges

Shared lounges

First and Business Class passengers – and Marco Polo Club members – will now enjoy shared access to all of both airlines’ award-winning lounges around the world. This expanded network features all of our premium properties at Hong Kong International Airport, including Gate 16, which will be renovated to follow Cathay Pacific’s new lounge design. Our aim is to provide you with world-class Asian hospitality whenever you are travelling, with spaces that consistently reflect our commitment to a Life Well Travelled.

New single website

We're also building a more seamless experience by integrating our digital channels, making it simpler for you to plan your journey.

You can now make reservations on both airlines from the Cathay Pacific website, and be notified of your chosen airline during the booking process.
