Under the arrangement, Cathay Pacific will place its “CX” code on Lufthansa’s daily Hong Kong-Frankfurt and daily Hong Kong-Munich flights, as well as on daily Hong Kong-Zurich flights operated by Swiss International Air Lines.
Meanwhile, Lufthansa will place its “LH” code on Cathay Pacific’s CX288/CX289 flights between Hong Kong and Frankfurt each day, and SWISS will place its “LX” code on Cathay Pacific’s daily CX382/CX383 flights between Hong Kong and Zurich.
The expanded agreement gives Cathay Pacific customers access to non-stop flights between Hong Kong and Munich, along with additional daily flights to both Frankfurt and Zurich.
Cathay Pacific Chief Customer and Commercial Officer Paul Loo said: “We are pleased to offer our customers even more choice and convenience when flying between Hong Kong, Germany and Switzerland. Europe is a key market for us and a popular destination for many of our passengers. These added services not only give our customers more non-stop options, but also make it easier to transfer onto connecting flights to destinations across the region.”
