Etihad Airways and SAS have established a new partnership through a strategic codeshare deal.

Behind The Codeshare Deal

As part of the strategic codeshare partnership signed between Etihad Airways and SAS, customers of both airlines will enjoy enhanced connectivity.

Thanks to the deal, guests can book on a single ticket and have to check in only once at the start of their flight. Baggage will thus be checked to the end of their destination.

Comments From Exectuvies

Our strategic bilateral agreement with SAS, coming after the start of our flights to Copenhagen, allows more seamless travel for our guests from Northern Europe to enjoy Abu Dhabi, and to connect with our growing global network, including our expanding destinations in the Indian Sub-Continent, East Asia, Middle East, and Africa. The tie-in gives our guests one-stop access across Scandinavia to destinations including Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, Gothenburg, Bergen and Aarhus.

Arik De, Etihad’s Chief Revenue Officer

We are happy for the opportunity to introduce a new codeshare agreement with Etihad Airways. This partnership expands the choices available to SAS customers for journeys to Abu Dhabi and beyond, with connections to India, the Seychelles, Sri Lanka and more. We will continue to enhance international connectivity and remain committed to our promise of providing seamless travel experiences to our customers.

SAS Executive, Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer Paul Verhagen
