Etihad Airways has expanded its codeshare agreement with Hong Kong Airlines.

Under the new codeshare agreement, Hong Kong Airlines will place its HX flight code on Etihad Airways flights between Hong Kong, the worlds third most important financial centre, and Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the UAE.

Etihad Airways will commence a daily frequency on the route from 15 June 2015, offering 3,620 seats per week with an Airbus A330-200 aircraft.

In addition, Hong Kong Airlines will codeshare on Etihad Airways new service between Abu Dhabi and Madrid, the capital and largest city in Spain. The route, which was launched in March 2015, is operated four times per week and offers 2,096 seats per week with a two class Airbus A330-200.

Li Dianchun, Commercial Director of Hong Kong Airlines, said, We are glad to strengthen the partnership with Etihad Airways through a codeshare expansion. There is an increasingly strong demand in Asia for travel to the GCC region, Europe, Africa and South America. The enhanced connectivity will enable our passengers to enjoy a wider range of choices while experiencing the world-class services and products offered by both airlines.

Etihad Airways and Hong Kong Airlines initiated their a codeshare agreement in December 2014, allowing Etihad Airways to place its EY code on Hong Kong Airlines flights between Hong Kong and Bangkok, and on flights between Hong Kong and Okinawa, while Hong Kong Airlines placed its HX code on Etihad Airways service between Abu Dhabi and Bangkok.

Etihad Airways will increase the frequency of its Bangkok service from three to four flights a day from 1 July 2015, with Hong Kong Airlines also codesharing on the additional flight.
