Cathay Pacific to commence Beijing codeshare flights


HONG KONG (Cathay Pacific) - Cathay Pacific Airways’ new code share services to Beijing with Air China will take off 30 October, offering wider customer choice and strengthening Hong Kong’s gateway position to the Chinese Mainland.

Air China will place its code on 10 weekly Cathay Pacific flights to the capital and Cathay Pacific will do the same on three daily return flights operated by the national carrier.

At the same time, a partnership between each airline’s frequent flier programme will come into effect. Full membership benefits, including miles accumulation and redemption, will be granted to passengers ticketed on both carriers, as will lounge access to qualifying passengers.

The combined membership of the Air China Companion and Asia Miles rewards programmes totals almost 6 million customers. Cathay Pacific acquired a 10 percent strategic shareholding in Air China at its initial public offering last year in Hong Kong.

Cathay Pacific General Manager Sales Hong Kong & China Clement Lam said: “Cathay Pacific’s codeshare with Air China to Beijing will provide much greater choice, particularly for passengers connecting through Hong Kong. This latest advance in our partnership will offer an even more attractive proposition to customers of both carriers and strengthen the hub status of their respective home bases.”
