China has been less than inviting in allowing international airlines access to its airspace, leaving international travelers with the choice of flying into Shanghai or Beijing, or flying on bone-rattling Tupolevs, cutting costs, both budget wise and on your life expectancy. Dragon Airlines Hong Kong has been fundamental in opening up the Chinese interior to international travelers, including some of the countries most spectacular sights, and all a budget price.

The airline has picked up six ‘Best Airline in China’ awards, all though the competition is less than rigorous, Dragon’s level of service is decent. As a short hail carrier facilities and service is at the budget end of the scale.
