Qantas has announced that it has entered into a codeshare agreement with Cathay Pacific that leverages the strengths of each carrier´s regional networks and provides more options for customers travelling between Australia and Asia, the company said.
The codeshare agreement will see Qantas add its code to Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon´s services within Asia from Hong Kong to 10 cities across India, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Vietnam, and on Cathay Pacific´s long-haul services from Hong Kong to Perth and Cairns*.
In turn, Cathay Pacific will add its code to 13 routes on Qantas´ domestic network in Australia.
Qantas Airways is the flag carrier of Australia and its largest airline by fleet size, international flights and international destinations. It is the third oldest airline in the world, after KLM and Avianca having been founded in November 1920; it began international passenger flights in May 1935.
