Etihad Airways has signed a codeshare agreement with Aegean Airlines, Greeces largest commercial airline.

The agreement will see Aegean Airlines commence a four weekly services between Athens and Abu Dhabi on 30 March 2014.

Etihad Airways will, subject to regulatory approvals, place its EY flight code on the new flight which Aegean Airlines will operate with a 168-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.

Beyond Athens, Etihad Airways will also place its flight code on Aegean-operated flights to 16 Greek destinations and to a further 10 cities across Europe.

In return, Aegean will offer new codeshare routes between Athens and seven destinations across Australia, the Gulf region, and South Africa.

Dimitris Gerogiannis, Aegean Airlines Managing Director, said, I am confident Greek tourism and businesses will benefit significantly from this development, as will Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, and one of the worlds leading business and tourism destinations.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways President and Chief Executive Officer, said, We started daily Abu Dhabi-Athens flights in June 2009, and since then, we have experienced strong demand year-on-year. The new Aegean-operated Abu Dhabi-Athens flight will complement Etihad Airways existing daily operation between the two cities, enhancing access between Greece and the rest of our global network. Our customer proposition will also be further strengthened as we will soon be able to place our flight code on Aegean flights to popular Greek destinations.

These destinations include Alexandroupolis, Chania, Chios, Heraklion, Ioannina, Kavala, Cephalonia, Corfu, Kos, Lemnos, Mykonos, Mytilene, Rhodes, Samos, Santorini, and Thessaloniki.

The Aegean-operated European destinations that will carry an EY flight number include: Vienna, Prague, Rome, Venice, Warsaw, Bucharest, Madrid, Tirana, Sofia and Larnaca.

Aegean Airlines plans to place its A3 flight code on Etihad Airways-operated flights from Abu Dhabi to Athens, Bahrain, Kuwait, Johannesburg, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
