Etihad Airways and Azerbaijan Airlines announced a codeshare partnership which now sees the Azerbaijani carrier place its J2 code on the UAE national airline’s services between Baku and Abu Dhabi. Under this partnership, Azerbaijan Airlines guests will be able to book codeshare flights to and from Abu Dhabi and connect onto Etihad Airways’ extensive global network.
Peter Baumgartner, CEO, Etihad Airways, said, “There is strong demand from both markets for a direct, full-service operation on the route, and we have responded to this increasing customer requirement. The new flights will further boost traffic from the UAE and strengthen the bilateral relations between the two nations.”
The flights are scheduled to operate three times weekly using Airbus A320 aircraft.
