Etihad Airways and SWISS ink codeshare agreement

Etihad Airways and Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) have launched a new codeshare partnership. Under the agreement, Etihad Airways will have its EY flight code on SWISS services between Geneva and Zurich.

SWISS will market its LX code on Etihad Airways’ services between Zurich and Abu Dhabi, offering its passengers codeshare flights to and from the UAE’s capital city. The codeshare services are bookable now, for travel from March 26, 2018.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways Chief Executive Officer, said: “This codeshare deepens Etihad Airways’ commitment to the Swiss travel market and Switzerland, a key destination for travellers from our UAE home, neighbouring Gulf countries, and across our Asia Pacific network. The partnership further strengthens the historic cultural, business and tourism ties that the UAE and Switzerland have enjoyed over many decades.”

The new agreement is part of the codeshare cooperation which began in 2016 between the Lufthansa Group, of which Swiss is part, and Etihad Aviation Group.
