FLYBE EXPANDS GLOBAL CONNECTIONS FURTHER WITH CATHAY PACIFIC CODESHARE
05 JANUARY 2015
Leading regional airline’s ‘One Stop to the World’ expanded with connecting flights now available through Paris and Amsterdam
Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has further expanded its ‘One Stop to the World’ service for regional passengers through an extension of its new codeshare agreement with Hong Kong-based airline Cathay Pacific that, initially providing seamless global connections just through Manchester, now includes those available via Amsterdam Schiphol and Paris Charles de Gaulle airports.
Now passengers travelling onwards with Cathay from Paris can connect from Birmingham, Exeter and Manchester; and from Birmingham and Southampton through Amsterdam, taking full advantage of Flybe’s ‘One Stop to the World’ services with bookings made via the Cathay Pacific website or through local travel agents.
Established in 1946, Cathay Pacific Airways is Hong Kong's flagship carrier which serves more than 90 destinations in some 35 countries across Asia, Europe, North America, the Middle East and Africa.
From the beginning of December, Flybe customers in Aberdeen, Belfast, Edinburgh, Exeter, Inverness, the Isle of Man and Southampton have been able to use a single ticket to fly from their local airport to Hong Kong via seamless connections through Manchester Airport onto Cathay Pacific’s new four times a week direct flight from Manchester to Hong Kong.
