Etihad / Airberlin Codeshare Flights Now on Sale

Etihad Airways and airberlin, Europe’s sixth biggest carrier, have started the sale of joint codeshare flights. It follows last month’s announcement that Etihad Airways would become airberlin’s largest single shareholder.

Using an Airbus A330-200 aircraft, airberlin will operate four flights a week between Berlin and Abu Dhabi from 15th January. Etihad Airways will place its EY code on these flights, providing European travellers with immediate access to 29 flights a week to and through Abu Dhabi from four German hubs (Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich), with a plan to increase to 42 flights from mid-April.

Part of the new strategic partnership will see airberlin place its AB code on Etihad Airways flights from Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich to Abu Dhabi and on Etihad Airways’ flights from Abu Dhabi to Bangkok, Malé and Singapore.

Etihad Airways will in turn codeshare on airberlin flights to Basel, Berlin, Catania, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Hannover, Helsinki, Milan, Rome, Stuttgart, Venice and Zurich.

Additional codeshare destinations will be announced in the coming weeks, subject to government approvals.
