Etihad customers can access destinations on the TAP network, including Rio de Janeiro and Miami
Etihad Airways and TAP Air Portugal have signed a strategic codeshare agreement, effective from 5 December 2023. Etihad customers will now have access to destinations across the TAP network, including Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo in Brazil, and San Francisco and Miami in the US.
Direct connections also include the African resort island of São Tomé, Madeira, Malaga, Seville and Valencia in Europe, and Marrakech and Dakar in Africa.
Etihad chief revenue officer Arik De said: “This collaboration provides our guests with convenient one-stop access to 26 of TAP’s fantastic leisure and business destinations. Equally, it expands the choices available to TAP customers travelling from Europe to Abu Dhabi, offering them the opportunity to seamlessly connect to a selection of our destinations in the GCC and Seychelles. Widening our network reach, allowing more guests to visit Abu Dhabi, is an important part of our strategic growth.”
The agreement follows the start of Etihad’s non-stop services to Lisbon earlier this year and enables both Etihad and TAP customers to connect to each other’s network through Frankfurt and London Heathrow.
As well as connecting customers to Etihad’s network, it will make it easier to for visitors to come and experience Abu Dhabi's array of attractions, ranging from the architectural masterpiece of the Louvre Abu Dhabi to adrenaline-filled adventures at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.
