British Airways, Cathay Pacific codeshare

Article content

26 February 2013 by Luke McCormick

British Airways has agreed a codeshare deal with fellow Oneworld airline Cathay Pacific on flights from the UK to Australia via Hong Kong.

The codeshare will take effect from 31 March 31, the same day BA's 17-year-old joint venture with Qantas is scheduled to end as the Australian carrier starts its new 10-year partnership with Emirates.

Under the new agreement, BA passengers flying from London Heathrow to Hong Kong can then take Cathay Pacific flights to Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Cairns. BA currently flies twice daily from Heathrow to Hong Kong.

BA will continue to operate its own daily service from Heathrow to Sydney via Singapore.

"The arrangement will allow British Airways to serve all major Australian cities and provide customers with increased schedule options and flexibility," said BA in a statement.
