a codeshare agreement.
Under the deal the Abu Dhabi-based airline will
place its two-letter EY code on Turkish Airlines’ flights from
Istanbul to the UAE’s capital city and the Turkish-based airline
will place its two-letter TK code on Etihad Airways’ flights from
Abu Dhabi to Istanbul.
The codeshare deal follows the launch of Etihad’s
four flights a week service to the Turkish commercial capital,
Istanbul, which began in June.
Turkish Airlines’ and Etihad
Airways’ passengers travelling between Istanbul and Abu Dhabi will
have a choice of taking more flights every week according to this
new codeshare agreement which will go into effect on July 6,
James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ chief executive, said, “Etihad
Airways’ new service from Abu Dhabi to Istanbul has been extremely
popular since its launch and we are delighted to sign this codeshare with Turkish Airlines which will support the growing
demand for flights between these two cities and beyond. This
latest codeshare agreement, Etihad’s sixteenth, will also help to
link Turkish expatriate communities around the world, as well as
build business links between Turkey and the UAE.”
