Etihad Airways is expanding its codeshare partnership with S7 Airlines to cover eight additional destinations from the Russian carrier's Moscow hub.

Effective January 16, 2016, Etihad Airways will place its EY code on S7 Airlines’ domestic services between Moscow and Chelyabinsk, Krasnoyarsk, Novosibirsk, Novy Urengoy, Omsk, Perm, Rostov-on-Don and Sochi. 

Under this revised agreement, S7 Airlines applies its code on routes via Moscow to Abu Dhabi and selected connecting destinations on Etihad Airways’ network including Singapore, Bangkok, Phuket and Sydney. 

The Abu Dhabi-based carrier, which operates daily flights to Moscow, already has codeshare arrangements in place with S7 Airlines covering the Russian cities of Kazan, Krasnodar, Saint Petersburg, Samara, Ufa and Yekaterinburg. Both airlines have been offering joint codeshare flights since 2010. 

James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ president and chief executive officer, said: “This enhanced codeshare arrangement with S7 Airlines is in line with our strategy to strengthen existing partnerships and develop new ones. 

“Etihad Airways has enjoyed a strong working relationship with S7 Airlines and through this enhanced partnership we are demonstrating our commitment to the Russian inbound and outbound market, and providing guests with greater choice and travel convenience.” 

Igor Veretennikov, S7 Group Deputy CEO and head of strategy department, said: “By extending our codeshare agreement with Etihad Airways, we open up more travel opportunities for S7 Airlines’ passengers, adding destinations such as Singapore to our route network. We look forward to welcoming Etihad Airways’ customers on eight more S7 Airlines’ routes within Russia.”
