Cathay Pacific To Make Doha Debut

Strategic agreement follows Qatar’s entry into the oneworld alliance

Cathay Pacific will makes its debut on the Hong Kong-Doha route from March 30 following a strategic agreement with fellow oneworld member Qatar Airways.

Cathay will fly a three-class Airbus A330-300 aircraft on the route, and the Hong Kong carrier and Qatar Airways will each operate one service between Hong Kong and Qatar daily – providing cost benefits to Qatar which previously flew double daily.

Top-tier members from Cathay’s The Marco Polo Club and Qatar Airways’  Privilege Club will enjoy reciprocal benefits covering miles, lounge access, extra baggage allowances and priority boarding.

Last month it emerged Cathay will drop flights to Jeddah and Abu Dhabi from March 30.

Schedules to Bahrain will be increased to daily with a stopover in Dubai, from the existing four-times-weekly with a stopover in Riyadh.

Flights to Riyadh will become five times weekly instead of the daily operation with intermediary stops at either Bahrain or Abu Dhabi. Its twice daily schedule for Dubai remains unchanged.
