Etihad Airways and Air Astana to Codeshare

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 28 February 2011

Etihad Airways has signed a new codeshare agreement with Air Astana, the national carrier of Kazakhstan.

Under the deal, travellers originating from any of Etihads destinations worldwide can now fly to Kazakhstan through its modern and efficient hub in Abu Dhabi, while travellers in Kazakhstan benefit through greater and easier access to Etihads global network.

Air Astana currently operates 11 services per week to Abu Dhabi from Almaty and Astana. The daily services from Almaty and four services per week from Astana complement Etihads own four services between Abu Dhabi and Kazakhstan, (three to Almaty and one to Astana).

Under the codeshare, Etihad places its EY code on services operated by Air Astana to Abu Dhabi from Almaty and Astana. In turn, Air Astana places its KC code on Etihads flights between Abu Dhabi and Astana and Almaty.

Peter Foster, President of Air Astana, said, This first step of cooperation with Etihad is central to our strategic goal of developing Abu Dhabi as a significant hub for Air Astana in the region ... Not only is choice between Kazakhstan and the United Arab Emirates immediately increased, but this codeshare opens Etihad's extensive network to Asia, the Middle East, Africa and the Indian sub-continent with Air Astanas growing network in Kazakhstan, Central Asia and the CIS. We are delighted to be able to benefit travelers to and from these growing regions.
