Etihad and Hong Kong Airlines expand codeshare agreement

Etihad Airways has expanded its codeshare agreement with Hong Kong Airlines.

The new deal will see Hong Kong Airlines place its HX flight code on Etihad flights between Hong Kong and Abu Dhabi, which launched today.

Hong Kong Airlines has also placed its code on Etihad's daily operation to Madrid, which launched in March.

Etihad’s chief strategy and planning officer Kevin Knights, said: “Our codeshare agreement with Hong Kong Airlines was initiated last year with a primary focus on enhanced connectivity between Asia and the Middle East.

“The expanded codeshare will result in further commercial success for both airlines, and more importantly unleash the true benefits of the partnership by offering business and leisure travellers enhanced connections and a more frequent service between Asia, the Middle East and Europe.”

Etihad and Hong Kong Airlines started their codeshare agreement in December 2014, which saw Etihad place its EY code on Hong Kong Airlines' services to Bangkok and Okinawa.

Hong Kong Airlines expanded codeshare on the following Etihad Airways flights:
