Following the recent break-up of the long-standing Joint Services Agreement (JSA) with Qantas, British Airways clients to and from Australia will, from the start of the summer season, have less code share choice with the Oz airline, 20 against 39.
From Heathrow there is the traditional route via Singapore with daily services to both Sydney and Melbourne. Total travel time is around 23hrs making it the quickest way 'down under'. There are numerous alternative airlines and routings.
Under a new code share customers will now be able to connect via Hong Kong to services operated by Cathay Pacific and bearing BA flight numbers. British Airways currently flies twice daily to Hong Kong, and onward flights will serve Adelaide, Brisbane, Cairns, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, and take advantage from the oneworld relationship.
Cathay customers travelling via Hong Kong will also be able to benefit from arriving at Heathrow Terminal 5 and connecting onto BA’s European network on a single itinerary with through-checked bags. www.ba.com
