Etihad Airways and Kuwait Airways launch new partnership

One of the best things about living in Abu Dhabi is all the travel opportunities it provides, and it has just been announced that two of the region’s major airlines are joining together in a new codeshare partnership.

The agreement between Etihad Airways and Kuwait Airways will be effective on bookings made after today (Sunday December 22), for travel after Sunday January 5 2020.

Etihad will place its EY code on three Kuwait Airways routes to Kuwait, Iraq and Bangladesh, while Kuwait Airways will place its KU code on Etihad routes from Kuwait to Abu Dhabi, Belgrade, Casablanca, Rabat, Khartoum, Johannesburg, Lagos, Nairobi, Male in the Maldives, and Mahe in the Seychelles.

Tony Douglas, group chief executive officer of Etihad Aviation Group, says: “This is a great first step in what we hope will be a mutually beneficial and growing relationship between Kuwait Airways, one of the region’s oldest and most experienced airlines, and Etihad, one of its youngest and most acclaimed. The joint network and product advantages of our codeshare collaboration with Kuwait Airways will create tangible benefits for our customers, building on the strong relationship between our two nations, while providing greater convenience and superior in-flight service and hospitality.”

We can feel some 2020 travel planning coming on.
