Abu Dhabi, Oct 21 (IANS/WAM) Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has expanded its code share agreement with Korean Air, South Korea's largest airline, to include six new destinations.

In the second phase of cooperation, Etihad Airways will place its EY code on Korean Air services from Seoul Incheon to Honolulu, Vancouver and Hong Kong.

Korean Air will place its KE code on Etihad Airways' flights from Abu Dhabi to Johannesburg, Muscat and, subject to government approval, Khartoum.

The new arrangements augment the airlines' existing codeshare services between Abu Dhabi and Seoul Incheon.

James Hogan, president and chief executive officer of Etihad Airways, said the expanded codeshare agreement would enable both airlines to grow their networks in a mutually beneficial way and broaden their appeal to world travellers.

"The three new codeshare destinations enhance Etihad Airways' business and leisure travel to the Asia Pacific region and North America," Hogan said.

"The flights to Honolulu and Vancouver, in particular, will provide convenient one-stop access from Abu Dhabi to these two popular North American destinations," he added.
