Just weeks before Etihad Airways commences services to Tokyo, a new ANA codeshare now offers Etihad customers from all over the world the opportunity to fly to two major Japanese destinations, with a third to follow at the end of this month.

The codeshare sees ANA place its two-letter NH code on the four weekly flights between Abu Dhabi and Nagoya. In turn, Etihads EY code is currently used on ANA operated flights between Nagoya and both Sapporo and Fukuoka.

As Etihad launches its services to Narita at the end of this month, the codeshare will be extended with NH code on the Abu Dhabi Narita service and EY code on domestic services operated by ANA between Narita and Osaka Itami.

The increased cooperation between the two airlines will also encompass both airlines frequent flyer programs. Members of both ANA Mileage Club and the Etihad Guest program will be able to earn and redeem miles on flights across both airline networks.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways chief executive, said, 2010 is a big year for Etihad in Japan. As well as launching services to Nagoya in February and Narita in March, this codeshare agreement with ANA will enable us to offer international connections to a broader local market as we establish ourselves among Japanese travellers.

We look forward to offering passengers from Europe, Africa and the Middle East a number of destinations within the Japanese market to visit for business or leisure, and expect that this route will perform strongly.
