Air Canada and Cathay Pacific announced a codeshare service agreement that will take effect on January 19, 2017.
The agreement will benefit Air Canada passengers traveling to eight Southeast Asia destinations serviced by Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon, as well as Cathay Pacific passengers traveling to Canada beyond Vancouver and Toronto. Passengers with both airlines will be able to travel on one-single ticket with luggages checked through their final destinations. Passengers will also be able to enjoy reciprocal mileage accrual and redemption benefits.
Air Canada currently operates one daily flight to Hong Kong each from Vancouver and Toronto. The eight Southeast Asia cities covered by this agreement include Manila, Cebu, Kumla Lumpur, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, City, Bangkok, Phuket and Chiang Mai. Cathay Pacific currently runs 14 flights to Vancouver (soon increases to 17) and 10 flights to Toronto each week. The agreement covers all major Canadian cities operated by Air Canada.
As you can see, the codeshare agreement does not include both airlines’ flights between Hong Kong, Vancouver and Toronto. Complete press release by Air Canada can be found here.
