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