AF and Etihad extend codeshare benefits


SINGAPORE, 12 September 2023: Air France-KLM Group and Etihad Airways have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to improve collaboration opportunities across passenger operations, loyalty programmes, talent development, and maintenance.

Air France-KLM and Etihad will expand their codeshare and interline agreements introduced in 2012. As a first step, more than 40 new routes covering destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and Australia are now available for booking for travel as early as the winter 2023 season starting in late October.

The MoU sets the stage for frequent flyer members of both airlines to earn and redeem miles. The airlines will also explore terminal co-location, reciprocal lounge access and ground handling, among other initiatives. Etihad operates daily flights from Abu Dhabi International Airport to Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam Schiphol.

Air France will start operating daily flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Abu Dhabi International Airport from 29 October 2023.

Earlier this year, Air France-KLM announced it had signed a MoU with Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism to reinforce connectivity between Europe and Abu Dhabi.
