New Delhi, Oct 27: Cathay Pacific Airways has said that a significant enhancement in connections between its own flights and Dragonair flights will come into effect with the winter 2006 schedule.

From October 29, a total of 451 more connections a week will be made available due to a reduction from 60 minutes to 50 minutes in the minimum connecting time (MCT) between the two carriers.

The reduction in MCT is among the early tangible benefits to emerge since Dragonair became a wholly owned subsidiary of Cathay Pacific on September 28 and will bring benefits for passengers connecting between Cathay Pacific's international network and Dragonair's network of destinations in the Chinese mainland.

The new development will help to further boost Hong Kong's role as a leading aviation hub and gateway to the Chinese mainland for international travellers, said Cathay in a statement.
