Finnair is on the verge of expanding its network through the process of codesharing in Southeast Asia with Cathay Dragon- a Hong Kong-based carrier. Starting from next week on primarily six flights, four new destinations will be seen included in the network of Finnair airline.
The travelers who opt Finnair’s services will also be fortunate to connect onto jetliners operated by Cathay Dragon flying between Hong Kong and Danang and Hanoi in Vietnam, Siem Reap & Phnom Penh in Cambodia as well as Yangon in Myanmar. The service would commence from June 15. Eventually, it was on June 6, the tickets for the flights went on sale.
In the meantime, Finnair would start implementing its code on flights operated by Cathay Dragon flying between Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur. Customers can start booking the flights beginning from June 28 for their travel starting from July 11. The introduction of codesharing service on flights indicates that the travelers would now be able to take up the Oneworld privileges at the time of flying on any of these Cathay Dragon routes. In addition, customers can also redeem and earn their frequent-flyer miles.
Philip Lewin, head of alliances and partnerships at Finnair stated, ‘we are elated with this smooth partnership with Cathay Dragon and pleased to provide a number of destinations and effortless connection in Asia.’
Presently, 10 weekly round trips from Helsinki to Hong Kong is provided by Finnair and further during the coming winter, it is planning to bring a new frequency. It would be operated by the airline’s newbie- the Airbus A350-900.
