Cathay Group Chief Executive Officer Ronald Lam said: “As Hong Kong International Airport continues to strengthen its sea and land connections with neighbouring cities in the Greater Bay Area, we are excited to open our brand-new Cathay Pacific lounge at the Shekou Cruise Home Port to our customers travelling from the region. We are committed to continuing to invest, and delivering a more comfortable and convenient travel experience for our customers. We are very grateful to the Shenzhen Government and China Merchants Shekou Cruise Home Port for their support. We look forward to welcoming our Greater Bay Area customers to our new Shekou lounge with our signature Cathay Pacific service and helping them move forward in life.”

Cathay Pacific has the ambition of becoming the leading premium airline of choice for international travel to and from its extended home market of the Greater Bay Area. Central to achieving this goal is providing a wide range of reliable and convenient intermodal services, including air, sea and land options, for Greater Bay Area customers to connect with their Cathay Pacific flights at Hong Kong International Airport.

Cathay Pacific customers can enjoy the transfer using its codeshare ferry services to go directly from the Shekou Cruise Home Port to the SkyPier Terminal at Hong Kong International Airport. Currently, there are 11 round-trip ferry services per day between the Shekou Cruise Home Port and the SkyPier Terminal. The ferry journey only takes about 30 minutes and customers can collect their ferry tickets, boarding passes, and through-check their luggage onto their Cathay Pacific flights to destinations around the world.
