Le communiqué sur ATN

Dragonair today announced a series of measures in response to the difficult business environment created by the current economic downturn.

In an effort to contain costs and preserve cash, the airline will reduce its passenger capacity by 13% from May.
At the same time the airline will introduce a Special Leave Scheme under which staff will
be asked to take unpaid leave varying from one to four weeks according to their seniority and rank.

Dragonair Chief Executive Officer Kenny Tang said: “Our business has been badly hit since the financial crisis first began to bite late last year and we have seen a significantly reduced demand for premium travel and pressure on our passenger yield due to the low fares in the market. The cost-cutting measures we have initiated since
the end of last year are clearly not enough so we have no alternative but introduce further measures to help us preserve cash.”

Details of the cost-saving measures are as follows:

Capacity reductions

A 13% cut in capacity will be introduced from May 1 2009 which includes ad hoc suspensions in May. Starting from June 1, services to Bengaluru, Busan, Sanya and Shanghai will be reduced, while all flights to Fukuoka, Dalian, Shenyang, Guilin and Xian will be suspended (see Appendix I).

The airline will also park its last operating freighter – a Boeing 747-400BCF. It will, however, continue to provide cargo services using the belly space in its passenger aircraft.

At the same time as introducing the above capacity reductions, Dragonair has announced its intention to launch a scheduled passenger service to Guangzhou. The new service is targeted to commence in September, subject to government approval, with a twice-daily flight.

Special Leave Scheme

The scheme is applicable to all Dragonair staff on a graduated, four-tier basis in accordance with staff seniority and rank. All 2,500 staff working for Dragonair from top management down – about 1,820 in Hong Kong and 680 overseas– will be invited to
take unpaid leave of one to four weeks, depending on seniority and rank, over a
12-month period from May 1, 2009 to April 30, 2010. Staff in overseas offices will follow local schemes that will be based on the Group scheme but with local variances.
About 76% of the total workforce in Hong Kong will be asked to take one to two weeks off over a 12-month period, or less than one working day every month. The scheme will have no impact on staff medical benefits and annual leave entitlements
