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.
Etihad Airways’ daily Moscow flights are operated with a 174-seat Airbus A321 in a two-class configuration of 16 In Business and 158 in Economy.
