Etihad Airways, airBaltic expand codeshare
Latvian flag carrier airBaltic has expanded its codeshare agreement with Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to include routes from Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt, Munich and Zurich to Abu Dhabi and Riga.
Subject to government approvals, the newly added codeshare routes will see airBaltic and Etihad Airways offer 37 connecting return flights per week between Riga and Abu Dhabi, with both airlines placing their respective BT and EY flight codes on services to and from these cities, it was reported Friday.
airBaltic already places its BT flight code on Etihad Airways flights between Abu Dhabi and Muscat, and Etihad Airways currently places its EY flight code on airBaltic services beyond Riga to 10 northern European cities. These include Bergen, Billund, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Oslo, Stavanger, Stockholm, Tallinn, Turku, and Vilnius.
Subject to further government approvals, Etihad Airways plans to place its EY flight code on airBaltic services beyond Riga to Kiev, Tbilisi, Palanga, and Gothenburg.
