Cathay Pacific sells inflight crockery at G.O.D stores
18 Feb 2004
Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it has teamed up with stylish Hong Kong home ware company G.O.D. to offer popular inflight items for sale to the public at G.O.D stores in Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui.
The link up was devised in response to demand from Cathay Pacific passengers who often ask whether they can buy service items during a flight. Items go on sale from today at G.O.D. in Causeway Bay and will be available at the Harbour City outlet in Tsim Sha Tsui from March.
The full range of Cathay Pacific's First and Business Class crockery which includes plates, bowls, salt and pepper shakers, cups and mugs, glasses, lacquer trays and dim sum baskets, all exclusively produced for Cathay Pacific by leading manufacturers, will be available.
Cathay Pacific Inflight Sales & Amenities Manager Anna Cheung says: "This is the first time we have sold our crockery in stores. G.O.D ties in perfectly with Cathay Pacific because we are both leading high-quality Hong Kong brands. Their products are original and their shops are located in prime locations, so this is a great opportunity for us."
Martina Chan, Head of Sales & Marketing of G.O.D. says: "We are positive that this joint promotion will increase public awareness on Hong Kong local cultural values and to promote the beauty of Hong Kong outside local community segments."
Cathay Pacific previously teamed up with G.O.D. in 2000. Passengers could order G.O.D. merchandise inflight for delivery to their home. Members of Cathay Pacific's Marco Polo Club and co-brand credit card holders can enjoy a 15% discount on purchase of Cathay Pacific items at G.O.D. worth more than HK$1,000.
