Etihad Airways and Avianca Brasil, one of the leading airlines in Latin America, have announced a codeshare partnership.
Under the agreement, Etihad Airways will put its ‘EY’ code on domestic flights operated by Avianca Brasil, while the south American carrier will put its ‘O6’ code on Etihad Airways flights between Abu Dhabi and São Paulo.
Travellers on Etihad Airways flights between São Paulo (IATA: GRU) and Abu Dhabi (AUH) and beyond can benefit from connections to and from eight other Brazilian destinations on Avianca Brasil, including Rio de Janeiro (GIG), Curitiba (CWB), Florianópolis (FLN), Fortaleza (FOR), Porto Alegre (POA), Recife (REC), Salvador (SSA), and Maceió (MCZ).
Later this year, Etihad Guest members and Avianca Brasil’s Amigo members will be able to earn and redeem miles on codeshare flights.
Martin Drew, Etihad’s Senior Vice President – Americas, commented: “Avianca is an important strategic partner for Etihad Airways in South America. In addition to the codeshare agreement recently signed with Avianca Colombia, we are further strengthening our presence in Brazil by offering our guests more convenience and connections with a single combined ticket.”
Frederico Pedreira, President of Avianca Brasil, added: “Through its main hub in Abu Dhabi, Etihad Airways will offer our customers excellent options of connection flights, especially to destinations in Africa, Asia and Oceania, where Avianca Brasil doesn’t operate directly. This partnership is important because it adds even more value to the services we offer our passengers.”
