Cathay Pacific baggage interline

Ever wonder which airlines Cathay Pacific has interline baggage agreements with? See the details at the bottom.

In case you wondering what interline agreements are, it means that Cathay Pacific can tag and transfer the bags to another airline so you can avoid rechecking.

Say for example you’re on two separate tickets, a ticket on CX from HKG to NRT and another separate ticket from NRT to LAX on UA.
While they are not airline partners nor in the same alliance, according to the list below, CX can still check bags through onto the UA flight so you don’t need to pick up and recheck the bags in Tokyo. You’ll see your bags in LAX as though you were on one separate ticket.

There are many reasons you’ll be on separate tickets, but here are the big three

  1. It’s cheaper to purchase the routing flying separate carriers
  2. You may want to use your miles for one leg and buy the other leg
  3. You have award miles in two separate accounts and don’t have enough miles for the full trip. So you redeem two separate award tickets for each leg.
