Cathay and WestJet announce new code share agreement

Cathay Pacific Airways and WestJet have begun a new code-share arrangement to offer passengers more choice and greater connectivity between Hong Kong and Canada.

Cathay Pacific’s “CX” code will be placed on WestJet flights between Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa and Winnipeg and the Hong Kong carrier’s two Canadian gateways, Toronto and Vancouver.

This is the second code-share agreement announced by Cathay in one week, as chief executive is quick to point out: “We are very pleased to announce this new code-share arrangement with WestJet, just one week after announcing another code-share service extending our reach in the United States,” he says. “This latest partnership will further expand our network and give passengers seamless connections on a quality carrier to six more cities in Canada – a country that’s popular both as a leisure and business destination for travellers from Hong Kong and Mainland China.”

WestJet president and CEO Gregg Saretsky is equally as pleased as this is the airline’s first code share agreement: “Our first code-share is yet another significant milestone in the history of Canada’s favourite airline,” he says. “We are very excited to partner with Cathay Pacific… today’s announcement is the first in a series of planned code-share agreements that help to solidify our vision to become one of the five most successful international airlines in the world.”
