Cathay Pacific has announced a new codeshare partnership with ferry operator Cotai Water Jet (CWJ), allowing the airline’s customers to travel to the region with the six daily direct sailings of the ferry operator, which depart from Hong Kong International Airport to Taipa Ferry Terminal.
Effective from February 26, the partnership will see the airline place its “CX” code on CWJ services operating between the two locations.
In a statement released earlier this week, the Hong Kong flag carrier said that Cathay Pacific customers in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore and the United States can book their travel to Macau through the airline’s local websites, in the respective countries, during the initial stage.
Cathay Pacific Chief Customer and Commercial Officer Paul Loo said: “Our new codeshare partnership with Cotai Water Jet provides our customers with greater choice and more options and is a win-win for these two dynamic cities.”
Meanwhile, Macao Government Tourism Office director, Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes, said she was supportive of the new codeshare agreement.
“The codeshare arrangement will certainly enhance accessibility to and from the region for many international markets, thereby further supporting and facilitating the development of Macau into a world center of tourism and leisure,” Fernandes added.
