Cathay Pacific has also entered into a new codeshare agreement with Australia’s flag-carrier, Qantas. Since October, Cathay Pacific has been adding its "CX" code to 13 routes on the Qantas domestic network in Australia. In turn, Qantas is adding its “QF” code to Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon services from Hong Kong to ten cities in India, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Vietnam, and on Cathay Pacific services from Hong Kong to Perth and Cairns.

In October, Cathay Pacific announced increased service frequencies to Adelaide, Frankfurt, Madrid and Tokyo. Services to Adelaide from Hong Kong have been increased to six times a week, while three more flights per week will be added to the airline's existing daily service to Frankfurt, commencing on 31st March; the service to Madrid will become a daily operation between June and October this year, with the addition of two more flights per week. The airline’s service between Hong Kong and Tokyo has meanwhile been increased to six times daily, with the introduction of an additional daily return service, to meet customer demand.

From 7th November, Cathay Pacific began codesharing on the Chu Kong Passenger Transport high-speed ferry services that operate between Hong Kong International Airport and various Greater Bay Area ports, including Humen, Lianhuashan, Nansha, Shekou, Fuyong (for Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport), Zhongshan and Zhuhai. Cathay Pacific customers in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore and the USA can book travel to these ports through the airline's local websites, while Mainland China customers can book through selected travel agencies. The partnership is expected to benefit worldwide customers by creating more convenient access to the Greater Bay Area.
