Cathay Pacific inks codeshare agreement with Iberia
May 22, 2017: Cathay Pacific today announced a new codeshare agreement with oneworld partner Iberia, which will see its customers benefit from extensive new connections to destinations in the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands.
The codeshare agreement signed by the two leading oneworld carriers will see Cathay Pacific place its “CX” code on selected services operated by Iberia between Madrid and five popular destinations in Spain: Alicante, Barcelona, Bilbao, Palma and Valencia. The “CX” code will also be placed on Iberia’s scheduled flights between Madrid and Lisbon, Portugal’s capital and largest city.
Cathay Pacific currently operates four weekly flights between Hong Kong and Madrid with its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The airline will launch a new seasonal summer service to Barcelona with the Airbus A350-900 aircraft from July.
Cathay Pacific customers travelling on Iberia codeshare flights from Madrid will enjoy the convenience of checked-through baggage service to their final destination, in addition to being eligible to earn Asia Miles on their trip. Tickets will be available for sale from May 24, 2017, for flights departing from June 7, 2017.
Paul Loo, chief customer and commercial officer-designate, Cathay Pacific, said, “As one of the founding members of the oneworld alliance, we are delighted to work with our oneworld partner, Iberia, to offer our customers with more travel options to and within Spain and Portugal. This new cooperation enables us to strengthen our connectivity in our expanding Europe network as well as grow the oneworld alliance.”
“We are pleased to enhance the cooperation with our oneworld partner Cathay Pacific and provide additional connectivity with their new flight to Madrid. The codeshare cooperation will provide customers in Spain and Portugal a convenient one-stop option for travelling to Hong Kong. It will also open up additional destinations on the Iberian Peninsula for Cathay’s customers travelling from Asia, promoting both business and tourism opportunities in Spain. Cathay’s customers will enjoy our onboard product and services and the seamless transfer experience we have developed in our Hub at Madrid Barajas Terminal 4,” said Neil Chernoff, Iberia Network and Alliances Director.
