Etihad Airways and Precision Airways say they have reached a codeshare agreement, effective immediately.

This means Precision Air will be able to use its PW code on Etihad’s flights between Dar es Salaam and Abu Dhabi and Etihad will be able to use its EY code on domestic Precision Air flights.

“This new codeshare agreement demonstrates Etihad Airways’ growing ambitions to strengthen its operations across the East African region,” says Etihad’s chief executive officer Peter Baumgartner.

“We look forward to welcoming Etihad Airways’ passengers on board our flights, and are excited about exploring additional opportunities to expand the relationship in the future,” says Precision Air chief executive officer Sauda Rajabu.

Passengers will be able to book codeshare flights from 21 December 2016 via travel agents or through the airlines’ sales offices and contact centers, with travel starting from 11 January 2017.
