Etihad Airways and Aerolíneas Argentinas have launched a new codeshare partnership. Under the agreement, Etihad Airways customers are able to enjoy convenient connections via Rome and Madrid to Buenos Aires and onwards to nine other popular Argentinian destinations.

These include Córdoba, Mendoza, Rosario, Iguazú, Salta, Mar del Plata, Bariloche, Trelew and Ushuaia.

In turn, Aerolíneas Argentinas guests can have access to Etihad Airways’ network of over 100 destinations from its Abu Dhabi hub via the Italian and Spanish capitals.

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.

“We wish to give travelers flying Aerolíneas Argentinas the opportunity to enjoy the acclaimed service and hospitality for which Etihad Airways is renowned throughout the world. This codeshare will make the experience that much easier.”

Codeshare agreements offer customers countless benefits, such as baggage check-in to their final destination and extra assistance during connections.

Members of both airlines’ loyalty programs – Etihad Guest and Aerolíneas Plus – will soon be able to earn and redeem miles on the codeshare flights.

Diego Garcia, Aerolíneas Argentinas chief commercial officer, said: “This is a very good opportunity to consolidate and increase our offer to one of the most important hubs in the Middle East.

“It also allows us to improve our load factors, optimize the use of the fleet and strengthen the image of Aerolíneas Argentinas in the Asian market.

“We hope that this agreement will also be the gateway for many tourists to visit some of the most attractive landmarks in our country.”
