Cathay Pacific Adds Three South African Destinations Through
Code-Share with British Airways Comair

Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it will add three South African destinations to its network from 1 September under a new code-share arrangement with British Airways Comair - a franchisee of the British carrier operating in South Africa.

Under the arrangement, Cathay Pacific's "CX" code will be placed on British Airways Comair flights between Johannesburg and Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth as an extension of Cathay Pacific's daily service between Hong Kong and Johannesburg. Seats on the code-share flights are already open for sale. With the addition of three South African cities to its network, Cathay Pacific will serve a total of 95 destinations in 35 countries and territories.

British Airways is, with Cathay Pacific, a founder member of the oneworld alliance. As a franchisee of the British carrier, British Airways Comair will offer full oneworld benefits to passengers.

Cathay Pacific's General Manager Revenue Management, Sales & Distribution Ian Shiu said: "We are very pleased to announce this new code-share arrangement with British Airways Comair, which will give our passengers seamless connections to three more cities in South Africa - a country that's becoming increasingly popular as a leisure and business destination for travellers from both Hong Kong and Mainland China."
