We expect to be back on sale for travel from week commencing 12 March 2023:

Pending successful migration of both airline systems we anticipate we will reopen EY AZ codeshare sales from week commencing 12 March 2023. There may be some interruption to interline selling for a similar period.

Recommendation of existing bookings affected and action required:

Existing bookings for this travel period will be reaccommodated by EY/AZ on respective operating prime flights. Reaccommodation activity will commence this week (from 23 Oct) and may take some days to complete. Agents will need to take action to update and re-issue tickets once notification messages are received through the GDS.

We look forward to navigating this transition successfully and minimising disruption for our valued partners and guests.
