British Airways and Cathay Pacific extend code share agreement

oneworld partners British Airways and Cathay Pacific have agreed to enter into a code share agreement for flights to and from Australia starting 31 March, 2013.

The arrangement, which is pending Australian regulatory approval, will mean British Airways customers travelling to and from Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Cairns can fly on Cathay Pacific services with a BA flight number when connecting onto one of British Airways' 14 weekly services between Hong Kong and London.

Cathay Pacific Director Sales and Marketing Rupert Hogg said: "We appreciate that our fellow oneworld alliance member, British Airways, has chosen Hong Kong and Cathay Pacific as an expanded means to bring their passengers from Australia to London and vice versa."

Nicole Backo, Regional Commercial Manager South West Pacific for British Airways, said in a press release "Customers travelling via Hong Kong will arrive at London Heathrow's Terminal 5 and have access to British Airways' extensive European network, whilst providing a single itinerary and through-checked bags."

The Cathay Pacific code share flights are an addition to British Airways' daily direct flights from London Heathrow to Sydney via Singapore.
