Etihad Airways and Air France have expanded their range of codeshare services for summer 2013. The expansion comes as part of a strategic agreement signed in October 2012 for the airlines to foster closer commercial ties. Etihad will now place its EY flight code on Air France flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG), Oslo and Stockholm, and the airline said it expects to build on the existing joint codeshare routes from Paris-CDG to Bordeaux, Copenhagen, Madrid, Nice and Toulouse. Subject to further regulatory approvals, Etihad will place its code on Air France flights between Paris-CDG, Lisbon and Marseilles. Air France will place its AF code on Etihad’s daily flights from Abu Dhabi to Khartoum, Melbourne and Sydney. The French carrier also expects to place its code on Etihad services between Singapore and Brisbane, and subject to regulatory approvals, on routes between Abu Dhabi and Kathmandu.
