During this past week a ceremony was held in Karachi
by Cathay Pacific Airways to introduce Oneworld Explorer now available
for sale in Pakistan. The Oneworld Explorer ticket brings a new
simplicity to round-the-world travel. The fare is based on the number of
Oneworld zones and class of travel. Up to three stopovers per zone
(excluding the zone of origin) are included in the price and one can buy
additional stopovers at a flat rate.
Cathay Pacific's Country Manager for Pakistan, Happy
Minwalla said, "We are delighted to be offering these Oneworld
Explorer fares in Pakistan. The fares embody one of the key benefits of
Oneworld alliance — the ability to offer customers a wide global
network and a consistently high level of service. They are simple and
flexible, allowing passengers to create individual itineraries to fit
their own needs."
