Abu Dhabi carrier Etihad Airways has signed a codeshare deal with South African low cost carrier Kulula.
The agreement will offer Etihad customers flight options to South African cities including Cape Town, Durban, George and East London via Johannesburg.
Etihad will place its EY code on kulula’s scheduled flights between Johannesburg and the cities and customers will be able to check-in and transfer baggage to their final destination.
Codeshare tickets will go on sale from today with travel starting from October 30.
“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,” said Etihad Airways CEO Peter Baumgartner.
