Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Tuesday, 7 July 2009

Etihad Airways has signed a MoU with Cyprus Airways which will pave the way for a codeshare between the two airlines.

Under the initial codeshare deal, which is expected to come into effect in September 2009, Cyprus Airways will place its CY code on Etihad Airways flights between Larnaca and Abu Dhabi.

The aim of the codeshare is to enable Etihad Airways, as a newcomer to the Cypriot market, to increase its presence through the greater cooperation with the Cyprus Airways, the Mediterranean islands national airline.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways chief commercial officer said, Since launching services between Abu Dhabi and Cyprus demand has continued to grow for Etihad Airways flights and we are therefore delighted to sign this MoU with Cyprus Airways which will support our expansion in this important market.

Etihad launched its four flights a week service between the capital cities of Cyprus and the UAE on 14 June

Etihad currently has 16 other codeshare agreements with Aer Arran, Bangkok Airways, Brussels Airlines, Malaysian Airlines, Jet Airways, Kuwait Airways, Yemen Airways, Saudi Arabia Airlines, Sri Lankan Airlines, Royal Air Maroc, Philippine Airlines, Middle East Airlines, Qantas, UK-based airline, bmi, Ukraine International Airlines and Turkish Airways.
