Feb 07,2019 - Last updated at Feb 07,2019

Royal Jordanian (RJ) and Etihad Airways announced a new codeshare partnership which will provide their customers with greater access to key leisure and business destinations in Asia, Australia, Europe, North Africa and Canada.

The codeshare flights will be open for sale on February 7, 2019, with the first travel date from February 15. This is the first such partnership between the two airlines, who offer multiple daily services between their hubs in Amman and Abu Dhabi.

The partnership will see RJ place its “RJ” code on Etihad Airways services from Amman to Abu Dhabi and vice versa, and then from the UAE capital to Brisbane and Seoul.

Subject to government approvals, RJ will also place its code on Etihad flights from Abu Dhabi to, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calicut, Cochin, Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Trivandrum, Manila, Beijing and Shanghai. In turn, Etihad Airways will place its “EY” code on Royal Jordanian’s flights from Abu Dhabi via Amman to Larnaca and Berlin, while Algiers, Tunis, Vienna and Montreal will be added to the agreement soon.

In remarks, Stefan Pichler, Royal Jordanian’s President and CEO, said: “We are delighted to have Etihad Airways beside our codeshare partners who help us grow in different markets. This move is bound to satisfy the needs of many RJ customers wishing to fly to Asia and Australia.”
