On Friday (January 19, 2024), Cathay Pacific announced the opening of their first ferry lounge at the Shekou Cruise Home Port in Shenzhen.  The new ferry lounge has been designed to further enhance intermodal travel by elevating the sea-to-air connectivity between Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) and the Greater Bay Area.  Cathay Pacific hopes to become the premium airline of choice for international travel to and from Hong Kong and the extended area.  The carrier believes that a wide range of convenient and reliable intermodal air, sea, and land options are central to achieving this goal. 

At the lounge opening ceremony on Thursday (January 18, 2024), Cathay Group’s 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 customers can enjoy seamless transfers via codeshare ferry services that go directly from the  Shekou Cruise Home Port to the SkyPier Terminal at HKG.  Ferry services currently operate 11 times daily, with a journey that only takes around 30 minutes.  Customers using the intermodal codeshare ferry service can collect their ferry tickets, boarding passes, and through-check their luggage onto their Cathay Pacific flights to destinations worldwide.
