The two airlines have jointly announced:
Cathay Pacific Airways and QANTAS Airways customers are set to benefit from a new codeshare agreement that leverages the strengths of each carrier’s regional networks and provides more options for customers traveling between Australia and Asia.
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*.
Customers of both airlines will also have increased opportunities to earn frequent flyer points through their respective loyalty programs.
QANTAS Frequent Flyer members will be able to earn more QANTAS Points and status credits when traveling on the QANTAS-coded flights. Similarly, Cathay Pacific Marco Polo Club members will earn more Club Points when travelling on a Cathay Pacific-coded flight.
Cathay Pacific and QANTAS together operate more than 100 services a week between Hong Kong and Australia. As oneworld alliance partners, eligible customers will continue to enjoy access to both Cathay Pacific and QANTAS lounges in Australia and Hong Kong, as well as other oneworld associated lounges across both airlines broader networks.
Tickets for the codeshare services will be available for sale from October 22, 2018, for travel from October 28, 2018.
