Etihad Airways to start Abu Dhabi-Hong Kong service with codeshare


Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has announced that it will offer codeshare services to Hong Kong starting in February 2013 in partnership with Air Seychelles subject to regulatory approval, according to the Shipping Gazette.
The thrice weekly return services between Abu Dhabi and Hong Kong will be operated by the airline's equity and codeshare partner, Air Seychelles, in which it has a 40 per cent stake. The service will be operated by an Airbus A330-200.
The new codeshare expands Etihad Airways' network in Greater China, following the launch of services to Beijing in March 2008, and to Chengdu in December 2011 as well as Shanghai in March.
"Hong Kong's fast growing economy and booming middle class have brought a remarkable increase in the number of travellers in recent years," said Etihad Airways president and CEO James Hogan.
"The new service connects two of the world's leading international financial and tourism centres, a move we believe will stimulate the growth of commerce and trade between the UAE and China, the UAE's second largest trading partner."
Said Air Seychelles CEO Cramer Ball: "We see Hong Kong as a significant driver for future tourism growth in the Seychelles, so we are positioning Air Seychelles to seize the opportunity and support this vital market."
The flight schedule will connect Abu Dhabi, to key destinations across the GCC and to key destinations in Europe including the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Ireland. The schedule also allows two-way connectivity between Hong Kong and the Seychelles.
Etihad Cargo, a division of Etihad Airways, currently operates three times weekly service from its hub at Abu Dhabi to Hong Kong.
The Abu Dhabi-Hong Kong schedule in local time is Flight HM86 departs Abu at 2120 hours and arrives in Hong Kong at 0840 +1 hours on Tuesdays Thursdays and Sundays.
Flight EY4121 (HM87) departs Hong Kong at 1800 hours and arrives in Abu Dhabi at 2330 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
