Cathay Pacific Airways, the Hong Kong based airline, and the Lufthansa Group, Europe’s leading airline group, will offer their passengers selected flights under their partner’s flight number in future (code-sharing).
For Lufthansa Group customers, this will significantly improve the connections available from Hong Kong towards Australia and New Zealand.
Passengers from Nigeria will now have more choices right when arriving in Frankfurt.
A corresponding agreement was signed recently by Ivan Chu, Chief Executive Cathay Pacific Airways and Carsten Spohr, Chairman of the Executive Board and CEO of Deutsche Lufthansa AG.
Thanks to this partnership with Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa, Swiss International Air Lines (Swiss) and Austrian Airlines (Austrian) will be able to offer their passengers four new destinations in Australia and New Zealand as connecting flights via Hong Kong, from 26 April 2017.
The destinations are; Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns and Auckland.
Passengers arriving in Hong Kong from Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna and Zurich will then be able to seamlessly transfer to selected Cathay Pacific connections and with just one booking.
Furthermore, passengers can check their baggage through to their final destination on any route of Cathay and collect miles on the respective code-share flight segments.
