Hong Kong Dragon Airlines Limited and Dragonair, was a Hong Kong-based international regional airline, with its corporate headquarters and main hub at Hong Kong International Airport. The airline operated a scheduled passenger network to around 50 destinations in 14 countries and territories across Asia. The airline was founded on 24 May 1985, by Chao Kuang Piu, who was most recently the airline's honorary chairman. Its maiden flight departed Hong Kong for Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. On 28 September 2006, Dragonair became a wholly owned subsidiary of Cathay Pacific. In January 2016, Cathay Pacific announced it was rebranding Dragonair as Cathay Dragon. The Cathay Dragon brand became active on 21 November 2016. On 21 October 2020, it was announced by Cathay Pacific that as part of the restructuring due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cathay Dragon would cease operations with immediate effect.
