Etihad Airways and EGYPTAIR Expand Codeshare Partnership

Etihad Airways and EGYPTAIR recently announced an expansion of their codeshare partnership.

The initial phase of the agreement was launched in March 2017 and saw both airlines place their codes on each other’s flights operating between Abu Dhabi and Cairo.

The second phase of the current codeshare partnership will see the UAE carrier place its EY code on EGYPTAIR flights to a number of African destinations, including; Ndjamena (Chad), Nairobi (Kenya) and Johannesburg (South Africa), to name a few.

The expanded partnership will also see Egypt’s flagship place its MS code on Etihad Airways flights from Abu Dhabi to Seoul, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, and subject to government approval, on flights to China.

Peter Baumgartner, CEO, Etihad Airways, explained, “The forging of closer codeshare ties between our two airlines means unprecedented access to many new gateways for Etihad’s customers while bolstering our services to markets we already serve, such as Kenya and Tanzania, by connecting easily through Cairo onto EGYPTAIR’s African network.”
