Air New Zealand/Cathay Pacific Strategic Agreement goes live

The Air New Zealand and Cathay Pacific strategic agreement becomes a reality today as the partners launch code share sales on each other’s services between Auckland and Hong Kong.

Customers will benefit from having twice (and up to three times) as many daily schedule options for travel between Auckland and Hong Kong, for travel from 31 January 2013.

Air New Zealand Airpoints™ members and Cathay Pacific’s Marco Polo Club members will also have increased opportunities to receive frequent flyer programme and lounge access benefits when travelling between Hong Kong and New Zealand. Air New Zealand’s loyalty customers will also get lounge access when travelling on Cathay Pacific’s connecting flights to and from Shanghai and Beijing via Hong Kong.

The cooperation between Cathay Pacific and Air New Zealand opens up better connectivity between New Zealand and points in China, heralding an exciting new opportunity for New Zealand’s tourism aspirations as Air New Zealand continues to grow this important market.
