6-Nov-2012 9:50 AM

Air New Zealand and Cathay Pacific announced (05-Nov-2012) a new strategic agreement on services operated by both airlines between New Zealand and Hong Kong, effective 31-Jan-2013. Sales will commence on 12-Dec-2012 and the agreement between the two airlines has received the required regulatory approval. Under the new agreement, both airlines will codeshare on all services between New Zealand and Hong Kong, providing more routing choices and better-coordinated flight schedules, which is expected to increase connection opportunities and enhance connectivity to destinations in China via Hong Kong and beyond Auckland. The agreement also covers FFP reciprocity. Air New Zealand operates daily service between Auckland and Hong Kong while Cathay Pacific operates daily on the sector, with frequency increase to double daily during the peak period between 02-Dec-2012 and 01-Mar-2013.
