Etihad keen to expand S7 codeshare
Published: 23/10/2012 RSS
Etihad Airways wants to extend its codeshare with Russian carrier S7 to include its services to Sydney and Melbourne.
Etihad currently codeshares on S7-operated services from Moscow to Kazan, Samara, Krasnodar and St. Petersburg, while S7 codeshares on Etihad's daily Moscow-Abu Dhabi service, and onwards to Bangkok.
"The aim now is to expand services and connectivity over both Abu Dhabi and Moscow with S7," said James Hogan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways, speaking at a press conference in Moscow to mark four years flying to Moscow.
"Moscow-Abu Dhabi has been a tremendous success with strong load factor and good traffic feeds from our codeshare partner, S7 Airlines. The UAE is home to almost 25,000 Russians and 400 Russia-UAE joint venture companies, and as a result, the business and cultural ties between the two countries have never been stronger."
