Etihad Airways and Air France expanded (30-May-2013) their codeshare agreement to include Paris CDG-Oslo and Paris CDG-Stockholm services operated by Air France and Abu Dhabi-Khartoum, Abu Dhabi-Melbourne and Abu Dhabi-Sydney services operated by Etihad Airways. Subject to regulatory approval, the airlines also plan to include Air France services from Paris to Lisbon and Marseilles and Etihad Airways' Singapore-Brisbane and Abu Dhabi-Kathmandu services under the agreement. Etihad Airways currently operates twice daily Abu Dhabi-Paris CDG service. Etihad Airways chief strategy and planning officer Kevin Knight said, "Enhancing connectivity, making the journey easier and more enjoyable, increasing choice, and seamlessly integrating operations over each airline’s respective hub, continues to underpin our strategy for building a world-class global network." As previously reported by CAPA, Etihad Airways also expanded its codeshare networks with KLM and Air France-KLM-Martinair Cargo in May-2013. [more - original PR]
