airBaltic and Etihad Airways expand codeshare
Latvia’s flag carrier airBaltic has expanded its codeshare agreement with Etihad Airways to include routes from Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt, Munich and Zurich to Abu Dhabi and Riga.
Subject to government approvals, the newly added codeshare routes will see the national airline of the United Arab Emirates and airBaltic offer 37 connecting return flights per week between Riga and Abu Dhabi, with both airlines placing their respective BT and EY flight codes on services to and from these cities.
airBaltic already has its code on Etihad flights between Abu Dhabi and Muscat, while Etihad has its flight code on BT services beyond Riga to ten northern European cities, the majority of them in the Nordic countries, namely Bergen, Billund, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Oslo, Stavanger, Stockholm, Tallinn, Turku and Vilnius.
Subject to further government approvals, Etihad plans to place its code on airBaltic flights to Kiev, Tbilisi, Palanga and Gothenburg.
