Etihad enters codeshare deal with Olympic Air

13 May 2010

(MENAFN) Etihad Airways announced the signing of a new codeshare agreement with Olympic Air, that comes into effect on May 18 and will also give air travelers in Greece greater and easier access to the Abu Dhabi-based airline’s network of 61 destinations, WAM reported.

Under the deal, Etihad will place its two-letter code on services operated by Olympic Air between Athens and Rhodes and Thessaloniki in Greece, the Romanian capital Bucharest, and capital of Bulgaria, Sofia.

In turn, Olympic Air will place its code on Etihad’s flights between Athens and Abu Dhabi and in due time on flights to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Sydney and Melbourne (pending government approval).

Etihad commenced services between Abu Dhabi and Athens in June 2009 operating three flights per week, which was increased to daily from January 2010. The flights were launched at the same time as Etihad began flights to Larnaca in Cyprus.
