Etihad Airways Strengthens African Ties

Etihad Airways continues to consolidate its presence in Africa through a new codeshare agreement with South African low-cost carrier kulula.

Effective from October 30, the deal will allow the Abu Dhabi-based airline's passengers to take advantage of enhanced flight options to a number of key destinations, such as Cape Town, Durban, George as well as East London, via Johannesburg.

The partnership further strengthens the Gulf carrier's commitment to Africa and brings the total number of destinations that it serves across the continent to 23.

Peter Baumgartner, CEO, Etihad Airways, said, "Through the agreement, kulula will give inbound passengers direct access from Johannesburg to four key destinations along South Africa's renowned coastline, and I am certain the extended reach offered through this partnership will appeal to business and leisure travellers alike."
