Etihad Inks Five Interline Agreements with Five Airlines

DALLAS – Etihad Airways (EY) has signed reciprocal interline partnerships with five airline partners, expanding global travel options for passengers.

The Abu Dhabi-based (AUH) airline has signed partnerships with Kam Air (RQ) in Afghanistan, SKY Express (GQ) in Greece, Rex Airlines (ZL) in Australia, Jeju Air (7C) in Korea, and Myanmar Airways International (8M). 

These new interline agreements provide passengers with enhanced connectivity to destinations across each other’s route networks, enabling travelers to book their entire journey on a single ticket and have their baggage checked to their final destination.

Arik De, Etihad’s Chief Revenue and Commercial Officer, said, “We continue to broaden our network reach, enabling seamless connection across our network, giving our guests a broader range of travel options. These five interline agreements make life easier for guests of all the airlines involved.”
