Etihad Airways has signed of a new codeshare agreement with Aer Arann, of Ireland.

Under the deal, which is now in force, the Abu Dhabi-based airline will place its two-letter ‘EY’ code on Aer Arann’s regional flights from Dublin to Cork and Galway in Ireland and also to the Isle of Man.

In turn, the codeshare agreement will give air travellers in Ireland and the Isle of Man access, via Dublin, to Etihad’s home base of Abu Dhabi and beyond it to nearly 50 destinations on the airline’s global network which covers the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and North America.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ chief executive, said, “Etihad Airways has developed a strong affinity with Ireland, with Dublin quickly establishing itself as one of our most popular routes, enjoying average seat factors during 2008 of more than 80%.

Paul Schütz, Aer Arann’s chief executive, added, “The importance of regional access within Ireland to major international routes cannot be over-stated and this codeshare agreement is a very significant addition to the infrastructure supporting business and the economy in the Irish regions.

“Both business and leisure passengers can now enjoy seamless travel from Cork, Galway and the Isle of Man to the entire Etihad network.”

Etihad Airways strengthened its ties with Ireland in March 2008 when it signed a two-year sponsorship deal of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championships. In the same month, the airline also increased it flights to Ireland to a daily service.

Etihad operates seven flights a week to Dublin. Flight EY41 departs Abu Dhabi on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 1.50pm and arrives in Dublin at 6.25pm the same day. Return flight EY48 departs Dublin on the same days at 7.55pm and arrives in Abu Dhabi at 7.20am the following day.

Flight EY45 departs Abu Dhabi on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 2.10am and arrives in Dublin at 6.45am the same day. Return flight EY42 departs Dublin on the same days at 9.00am and arrives in Abu Dhabi at 8.25pm the same day.

Aer Arann is a regional airline based in Dublin, Ireland. The airline operated its first commercial flight in 1970. The airline today operates more than 600 flights per week across 40 different routes between Ireland, France, and the United Kingdom.
