American Airlines and Cathay Dragon have signed a codeshare agreement adding service to four new destinations and increased service to three existing markets for the US carrier in Southeast Asia.

American will place its code on select flights of the Cathay Pacific Group subsidiary from Hong Kong International Airport, providing connecting service to seven cities beyond Hong Kong.

The agreement allows American’s customers to connect to four new destinations in Asia – Dhaka, Bangladesh; Chiang Mai, Thailand; Da Nang, Vietnam; and Phuket, Thailand.

It also increases frequencies to three existing markets served by American’s other partners in Asia to Penang, Malaysia; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and Hanoi, Vietnam.

American has served Hong Kong since 2013 and currently operates daily, year-round service from Dallas-Fort Worth and Los Angeles.
