Air Malta and Etihad Airways have expanded their codeshare agreement to provide travellers with improved connections between Europe, the GCC region and Australia.

The two airlines extended their partnership to coincide with the launch this week of Etihad Airways service between Abu Dhabi and Rome. Air Malta is placing its KM code and flight number on the new route, while Etihad Airways is placing its EY code and flight number of Air Maltas non-stop service between Rome and Malta.

Air Maltas code and flight number will also be placed on Etihad Airways services from Abu Dhabi to Australia for the first time, covering the UAE carriers existing flights to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, as well as Perth, which also launched this week.

The expanded agreement follows the success of Air Maltas existing codeshare on Etihad Airways flights between Abu Dhabi and London Heathrow, Brussels and Manchester.

Air Maltas Chief Executive Louis Giordimaina said, We are very pleased to enhance our cooperation with Etihad Airways, the flag carrier of the United Arab Emirates and one of the most important airlines in the Middle East. Both airlines share a firm commitment towards superior service and customer satisfaction, and this agreement will benefit the sizable Maltese community living in Australia as it will facilitate travel and connectivity between the Maltese islands and the Australian continent.
