Finnair starts codeshare cooperation with Cathay Dragon and extends its network in Asia

Finnair and Cathay Pacific Airlines have agreed a new codeshare on the routes operated by Cathay Dragon, Cathay Pacific Airline’s affiliate, between Hong Kong and selected destinations in Asia. The new codeshare agreement adds four new destinations to Finnair’s network in Asia.

From June 15 onwards, Finnair customers can connect with Cathay Dragon’s flights from Hong Kong to Hanoi and Danang, Vietnam; Yangon, Myanmar; Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, Cambodia.

In addition, subject to regulatory approval, from July 11, Finnair customers can connect from Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur. Flights to Kuala Lumpur can be booked from June 28 onwards.

Finnair customers can enjoy oneworld privileges and earn and redeem frequent flyer points also on Cathay Dragon’s flights.

“We warmly welcome this cooperation with Cathay Dragon and are delighted to offer our customers yet more destinations and smooth connections in Asia. Currently Finnair offers ten weekly round trips from Helsinki to Hong Kong and adds a new frequency during this winter season,” says Philip Lewin, Head of Alliances and Partnerships at Finnair.
