Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 18 March 2010

Etihad Airways today launches its first codeshare operation out of Pakistan. The new codeshare, with American Airlines, offers customers in Pakistan convenient connections between Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore and key destinations in the US, including Washington, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Miami and Houston. The expansion follows the original codeshare agreement made between Etihad Airways and American Airlines in September 2009.

Passengers transferring between the two carriers will be able to purchase a single ticket for their journey and enjoy the convenience of being able to check in luggage through to their final destination.

The US is a key market for Etihad and a popular destination for many of our customers in Pakistan. Etihad has seen substantial growth to and from the US over the past few years and we are committed to strengthening the ties between the Pakistan and US markets through this new codeshare, said Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways Chief Commercial Officer. As our first codeshare out of Pakistan, we are delighted to partner with American Airlines, one of the worlds largest and most respected airlines and we look forward to strengthening this strategic relationship further into the future.

Etihad Airways currently places its EY code on a number of transatlantic services operated by American Airlines between Europe and the US, as well as selected domestic services operated beyond New York and Chicago. The carriers recently confirmed that American Airlines will also place its AA code on Etihad services from Kuwait city, with Etihad placing its two letter EY code onto American Airlines operations to Atlanta, Detroit and Minneapolis via Chicago.

Etihad Airways currently flies to three destinations in North America - New York, Chicago and Toronto in Canada - and started operations to Pakistan in 2004 with flights to and from Karachi. Etihad now offers services to Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore as well as 13 destinations in the Indian Subcontinent and 60 destinations across the globe.
