Etihad Airways, Malaysia Airlines Sign Code-Share Agreement
United Arab Emirates-based Etihad Airways has signed a new code-share agreement with Malaysia Airlines.
Under the code-share agreement, Etihad Airways will place its two-letter EY code on Malaysia Airlines's flights between Kuala Lumpur, and Kota Kinabalu, Penang, Kuching and Langkawi.
James Hogan, CEO of Etihad Airways, said: "Asia is an important market for Etihad and there is huge demand amongst our customers to travel beyond the Malaysian capital, which this new code-share agreement now allows. We are delighted to have been able to get this exciting new code-share agreement up and running so soon after signing the memorandum of understanding."
