Etihad signs codeshare with Asiana

Etihad Airways and Asiana Airlines signed (27-Oct-2010) a codeshare agreement, complementing Etihad’s plans to launch Abu Dhabi-Seoul Incheon service on 10-Dec-2010 - see Route Changes Table for more information. The new cooperative relationship will see flights between Abu Dhabi, Seoul and beyond operating under an EY (Etihad) and OZ (Asiana) code. The codeshare fares will be available for purchase from mid-Nov-2010. The carriers plan to later expand the codeshare agreement to additional territories across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Korea. Etihad CEO James Hogan stated South Korea is a "very important market for the United Arab Emirates, and we are confident that this relationship will increase the flow of traffic between the two countries". The airlines also plan to work together to cultivate the partnership across a number of fields including sales and marketing activities, system development, interline expansion and ground handling.
