Etihad better access to South Africa
Etihad Airways is now able to offer enhanced access to and from South Africa following yesterday’s launch by codeshare partner, South African Airways (SAA), of a new daily service between Johannesburg and Abu Dhabi.
The new service has been introduced as part of an expansion of the strategic partnership between the two airlines, and complements Etihad Airways’ existing daily service from Abu Dhabi to Johannesburg, providing travellers with a double-daily service and greater choice and flexibility whether flying from Africa, the United Arab Emirates or beyond.
As a result, South African Airways’ guests travelling from Africa can access up to 35 new codeshare destinations, pending regulatory approval, with connections through Etihad Airways’ Abu Dhabi hub to key destinations in Australia, the GCC, Europe, North and South East Asia, and the Indian Subcontinent.
Etihad Airways’ guests will benefit from enhanced access to Africa on South African Airways’ new service from Abu Dhabi to Johannesburg, and subject to outstanding regulatory approval, onwards to 17 codeshare destinations across South African Airways’ network in Africa.
