Etihad Airways and Avianca Brasil have just announced a codeshare partnership. Under the agreement, Etihad Airways will put its 'EY' code on domestic flights operated by Avianca Brasil while Avianca Brasil will put its 'O6' code on Etihad Airways flights between Abu Dhabi and São Paulo.
Etihad Airways flights between São Paulo (GRU) and Abu Dhabi (AUH) will now benefit from connections to and from eight other Brazilian destinations on Avianca Brasil, including Rio de Janeiro (GIG), Curitiba (CWB), Florianópolis (FLN), Fortaleza (FOR), Porto Alegre (POA), Recife (REC), Salvador (SSA), and Maceió (MCZ).
The new codeshare agreement offer guests added benefits, including direct baggage check-in to their final destination and extra assistance during connections. Additionally, later this year Etihad Guest members and Avianca Brasil’s Amigo members will also have the opportunity to earn and redeem miles on codeshare flights.
