Travel Daily ME - - News -

Eti­had Air­ways and Aerolíneas Ar­genti­nas have launched a new code­share part­ner­ship, cre­at­ing con­nec­tions via Rome and Madrid to Buenos Aires and on­wards to nine other Ar­gen­tinian des­ti­na­tions: Cór­doba, Men­doza, Rosario, Iguazú, Salta, Mar del Plata, Bar­iloche, Trelew and Ushuaia.

Aerolíneas Ar­genti­nas guests now have ac­cess to Eti­had Air­ways’ network of over 100 des­ti­na­tions from its Abu Dhabi hub via the Ital­ian and Span­ish cap­i­tals. Mem­bers of both air­lines’ loy­alty pro­grammes, Eti­had Guest and Aerolíneas Plus, will soon be able to earn and re­deem miles on the code­share flights.

Mo­ham­mad Al Bu­looki, Eti­had Air­ways ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent com­mer­cial, said: “This code­share demon­strates the im­por­tance of Ar­gentina as a vital travel mar­ket for Eti­had Air­ways in Latin Amer­ica given the grow­ing tourism, cul­tural and busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties that ex­ist be­tween the UAE and Ar­gentina.

Eti­had Air­ways has in­tro­duced the Boe­ing 787-9 air­craft on its daily ser­vice from Abu Dhabi to Am­s­ter­dam Schiphol Air­port, hav­ing pre­vi­ously op­er­ated the 787 Dream­liner on the Am­s­ter­dam ser­vice in the sum­mer of 2016.

The 787 Dream­liner is con­fig­ured with 299 seats, 28 Busi­ness Stu­dios and 271 Econ­omy Smart Seats.

Peter Baum­gart­ner, Eti­had Air­ways chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, said: “The de­ci­sion to up­grade our daily Am­s­ter­dam ser­vice to the 787 Dream­liner air­craft re­flects the im­por­tance of the Nether­lands mar­ket.

“We re­ceived great cus­tomer feed­back when we first flew the air­craft to the Dutch cap­i­tal last sum­mer, and I’m very pleased that more trav­ellers will now be able to en­joy the su­pe­rior lev­els of com­fort and tech­nol­ogy it of­fers, year- round. ”
