Etihad Airways continues to build its presence in Russia with the expansion of the commercial agreement with S7 Airlines. S7 Airlines is Russia's fastest growing airline and the country’s largest domestic carrier.
The revised deal will allow Etihad and S7 passengers to book flights from four Russian regional cities for travel to and from Abu Dhabi and beyond, connecting with Etihad’s daily Moscow services.
The new codeshare cities served are: Kazan (KZN), Samara (KUF), Krasnodar (KRR) and Saint Petersburg (LED).
James Hogan, Etihad Airways Chief Executive Officer, said: “The Russian regional cities are now even more accessible from Abu Dhabi and beyond on the Etihad network, thanks to the expansion of our codeshare agreement with S7 Airlines.
“We view the revised partnership as a natural extension of the successful joint operations we launched in March 2010.
“We look forward to continuing to work with S7 to enable passengers from all over Russia to travel to Abu Dhabi and further afield.” said James Hogan, CEO of Etihad Airways.
The new codeshare is operational immediately and travellers can book tickets through travel agents and Etihad’s contact centres. Internet sales are operational via www.s7.ru  and will available soon via www.etihadairways.com
