Etihad Airways and Turkish Airlines have recently expanded their codeshare partnership. This expansion, which came into effect on August 24, 2023, is set to benefit travelers by offering seamless travel options to three key destinations in Africa.
Under this enhanced codeshare agreement, Turkish Airlines will operate selected services with the Etihad code on the following routes:
- Istanbul to Abidjan (Twice weekly)
- Istanbul to Douala (Four times weekly)
- Istanbul to N’Djamena (Twice weekly)
The codeshare arrangement enables passengers to enjoy the convenience of booking their entire journey on a single ticket, with the assurance of world-class service from both airlines.
The addition of these African cities to the codeshare network represents a strategic move by Etihad Airways and Turkish Airlines. Africa is a region of immense economic growth and cultural diversity, making it an attractive destination for both business and leisure travelers. By tapping into this market, the airlines are positioning themselves to better serve their customers and explore new growth opportunities.
For passengers traveling from Istanbul, these three African destinations will become easily accessible via Etihad’s network. Abidjan, known for its vibrant culture and economic significance, Douala, a bustling port city, and N’Djamena, the capital of Chad, offer diverse travel experiences.
This expansion comes at a time when the aviation industry is gradually recovering from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. As global travel demand continues to rebound, the partnership between Etihad Airways and Turkish Airlines is well-timed to meet the evolving needs of travelers.
