Attended by the Latvian Prime Minister, government officials, airline executives, business leaders, travel agents and media, the event also officially kicked off a new Etihad Airways-airBaltic codeshare partnership.
From today airBaltic operates an Airbus A319 aircraft four times a week between the Latvian capital and Etihad Airways’ Abu Dhabi hub. The aircraft is configured with 14 seats in Business Class and 102 seats in Economy Class.
Etihad Airways has placed its ‘EY’ flight code on the new airBaltic operated service, and beyond to 15 cities including: Alesund, Barcelona, Bergen, Billund, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Lappeenranta, Oslo, Prague, Stavanger, Stockholm, Tallinn, Turku, Vienna and Vilnius.
Subject to regulatory approvals, airBaltic will soon place its ‘BT’ flight code on Etihad Airways flights beyond Abu Dhabi to Cairo, Jakarta, Singapore, Bangkok, Amman and Muscat.
