Cathay Pacific is the latest airline to join the Worldwide by Easyjet service, which will allow passengers to connect to flights to Hong Kong from Gatwick.
The carrier joins others such as Emirates, Virgin Atlantic, Norwegian, Air Transat and Singapore Airlines, among others.
Worldwide by Easyjet launched in September 2017 and allows passengers to connect Easyjet flights through Gatwick to long-haul flights. The service now connects to 11 airports across Europe, which means more than half of the airline’s flights will be able to connect to airline partner services in a single booking through Easyjet’s digital booking portal powered by Dohop.
Easyjet CEO Johan Lundgren said: “We’re really pleased to welcome Cathay Pacific and are confident they will be a popular addition for customers who are looking for an easy and seamless way to connect between Europe, the Far East and beyond. We will continue to sign up other airlines to Worldwide by Easyjet during 2019 and the airline also plans to expand to other key Easyjet airports in Europe.”
James Ginns, general manager for Europe at Cathay Pacific, commented: “Partnering with Worldwide is an exciting development for Cathay Pacific. Using Easyjet’s wide European network their customers can book and connect with confidence to our daily Gatwick flight, enabling straightforward access to the Hong Kong hub.”
