Etihad ANA codeshare in place

Japan continues to be focus for Etihad Airways this week as a codeshare with ANA is finally in place, sources said. Brought into working order before Etihad’s Tokyo service takes off, the ANA codeshare will enable Etihad customers all over the world to travel to two major cities in Japan. A third one will be introduced later this month.
The codeshare allows ANA to put its two-letter 'NH' code on the four weekly flights between Abu Dhabi and Nagoya. Similarly, Etihad's 'EY' code is currently used on ANA-operated flights between Nagoya and both Sapporo and Fukuoka. “2010 is a big year for Etihad in Japan. As well as launching services to Nagoya in February and Narita in March, this codeshare agreement with ANA will enable us to offer international connections to a broader local market - as we establish ourselves among Japanese travellers,” said James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ Chief Executive.
Meanwhile, Etihad has 20 more codeshare agreements with other airlines that include: American Airlines, Aer Arran, Alitalia, Bangkok Airways, BMI, Brussels Airlines, Cyprus Airways, Flybe, Jet Airways, Kuwait Airways, Malaysian Airlines, Middle East Airlines, Olympic Airlines, Philippine Airlines, Qantas, Royal Air Maroc, Saudi Arabia Airlines, Sri Lankan Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Ukraine International and Yemen Airways.
