Airlines launch code-share agreement

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Cathay Pacific Airways and Malaysia Airlines last month launched a code-share agreement involving their flights between Hong Kong and Malaysia.

The agreement covers the two airlines' routes between Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur and between Hong Kong and Penang.

Under the agreement, Cathay Pacific will sell seats on nine Malaysia Airlines flights each week between Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur, including two flights which stop in Penang. Malaysia Airlines will sell seats on the 17 weekly Cathay Pacific flights between Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur, including the seven flights which continue to Penang.

With the new code share in operation, Cathay Pacific also plans to increase its frequency from 17 flights to 21 flights each week between Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur starting in December.

Malaysia Airlines plans to increase frequency from nine to 10 flights a week between Hong Kong and Malaysia, also later this year.
