Travellers from around the world will soon enjoy more convenient access to the tourism and entertainment centre of Macao and the Pearl River Delta beyond, thanks to a new Cathay Pacific codeshare agreement with ferry operator Cotai Water Jet, the company said.
Effective from 26 February 2018, the partnership will see the airline place its “CX” code on Cotai Water Jet services operating between Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) and the Taipa Ferry Terminal, the main gateway to Macao´s pulsating Cotai Strip.
During the initial launch stage, Cathay Pacific customers in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore and the United States can book travel to Macao through the airline´s local websites, with tickets now available for sale. Booking eligibility will be extended to other international markets over the months ahead.
Cathay Pacific customers traveling to Macao will enjoy check-through baggage and a choice of six daily direct Cotai Water Jet sailings, which depart from the SkyPier at HKIA, ensuring expedient and flexible inter-modal transport connectivity.
Macao is an integral part of the Greater Bay Area, a trade, business and logistics initiative which also includes Hong Kong and cities in Guangdong province.
