Cathay Pacific will face fight to keep Dragon flight routes

Upstart Greater Bay Airlines to challenge for regional traffic rights

HONG KONG -- Embattled Hong Kong flag carrier Cathay Pacific Airways will have to vie with rivals for rights to serve the flight routes operated until now by subsidiary Cathay Dragon after abruptly shutting the unit this week as part of a major restructuring.

Cathay Dragon, originally a startup rival known as Dragonair, was grounded on Wednesday after 35 years of connecting Hong Kong to regional cities, mostly in mainland China.
