Cathay Pacific codeshares with Dragonair

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Wednesday, 22 November 2006

Cathay Pacific has created a new codeshare arrangement with Dragonair. The codeshare applies to seven cities in total and is effective on flights to Shanghai, Beijing, Xiamen, Tokyo and Kota Kinabalu from 1 December 2006. The codeshare will also apply to two new Dragonair destinations: Phuket, which launches on 15 December, and Busan, where flights begin on 19 January 2007. All the code-share flights will carry both the CX and KA codes.

The codeshare will extend the Cathay Pacific network by three destinations Kota Kinabalu, Phuket and Busan to 105 and give passengers more choice on the routes on which both carriers operate. For example, on the Shanghai route passengers can choose to fly on the Cathay Pacific daily service, which launches on 1 December, or on the other 16 flights each day that are codeshared with Dragonair. Overseas passengers, who are perhaps more familiar with the Cathay Pacific brand, will be able to book a Cathay Pacific ticket through to the codeshared destinations, enjoying seamless connections through Hong Kong. Other advantages for customers include being able to book flights online to the codeshared destinations through the Cathay Pacific website.

Cathay Pacific Director Corporate Development Augustus Tang said, We are delighted to announce this new codeshare arrangement between Cathay Pacific and Dragonair. The principal aim of our integration with Dragonair is to create new synergies that will bring a range of benefits for passengers as well as help to further develop Hong Kong as an international aviation hub. The codeshare marks another significant step towards achieving this aim.

Dragonair became a wholly owned subsidiary of Cathay Pacific on 28 September this year.
