Cathay Pacific and the European low-cost carrier Easyjet have announced that the Hong Kong-based airline will join the ‘Worldwide by Easyjet’ service, which is the first global airline connections platform by a European low-cost airline.

We 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 sign up other airlines to Worldwide by Easyjet during 2019 and the airline also plans to expand to other key Easyjet airports in Europe. Johan Lundgren, Easyjet Chief Executive Officer

The connection service allows passengers to book their Cathay Pacific and Easyjet flights on one web platform, even if the two different airlines don’t sign interline or codeshare agreements. According to Easyjet, the service offers the same sort of connectivity as a self-connect and sales partnerships through a digital hub.

‘Worldwide by Easyjet‘ is currently available for connecting flights through a total of eleven airports across Europe, including Amsterdam, Barcelona, London Gatwick, Milan Malpensa, Berlin Tegel and Venice Marco Polo.

The addition of Cathay Pacific compliments the existing agreements with long-haul carriers, including Emirates, Virgin Atlantic, Norwegian, WestJet and Singapore Airlines.
