Etihad Airways and Royal Jordanian have entered into a new codeshare partnership which will provide customers with greater access to destinations in North Africa, Europe, Canada, Asia and Australia.
The codeshare flights opened for sale on 7 February 2019, with the first travel date from 15 February.
The partnership will see Etihad Airways place its ‘EY’ code on Royal Jordanian’s flights from Abu Dhabi to Larnaca and Berlin, while Algiers, Tunis, Vienna and Montreal will be added to the agreement soon.
In turn, Royal Jordanian will initially place its ‘RJ’ code on Etihad Airways services from Amman to Abu Dhabi and vice versa, and then from the UAE capital to Brisbane and Seoul.
RJ will also market Etihad flights from Abu Dhabi to, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calicut, Cochin, Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Trivandrum, Manila, Beijing and Shanghai.
Etihad Airways currently operates two daily flights between Abu Dhabi and Amman using a mix of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and Airbus A320 aircraft.
Royal Jordanian has served Abu Dhabi since 1970 and today flies nine weekly flights, with a twice daily frequency in the summer.
