Cathay Dragon has added three new destinations to its route map in mainland China, as part of an expanded codeshare agreement with Shenzhen Airlines.
Under the new arrangement, Cathay Dragon’s “KA” code will be placed on Shenzhen Airlines’ flights between Hong Kong and Yantai, Jinan and Harbin. In return, Shenzhen Airlines’ “ZH” code will be placed on Cathay Dragon’s services between Hong Kong and Nanjing and Xi’an.
Yantai and Jinan are both located in Shandong province and Harbin is the largest city in northeast China’s Heilongjiang province.
“This is another milestone for Cathay Dragon and our partner Shenzhen Airlines. Both airlines have demonstrated great commitment to our customers and this latest arrangement will provide more choice and greater convenience for our passengers travelling between Hong Kong and mainland China,” said Cathay Dragon’s CEO, Algernon Yau.
The airlines’ existing agreement, which has been in place since January 2015, sees Cathay Dragon codeshare on Shenzhen Airlines’ flights between Hong Kong and Jinjiang. The addition of Yantai, Jinan and Harbin expands Cathay Dragon’s network in mainland China to 27 destinations.
Tickets for the new codeshare services are now open for sale for travel commencing 11 July 2017.
