Etihad Airways and Air Serbia have initiated a strategic bilateral codeshare, marking a significant collaboration to enhance connectivity for passengers across a range of destinations.
This partnership enables Etihad's customers to access 12 Southeast European destinations through Air Serbia's Belgrade hub, introducing nine destinations that were previously not part of Etihad's extended network. The codeshare arrangement aims to simplify the travel experience, allowing passengers to make a single booking and undergo a seamless check-in process, with the added convenience of having their baggage transferred effortlessly to their final destination.
Air Serbia's extensive network is now easily accessible to Etihad's customers, who can connect to it from Etihad's gateways in Athens, Milan, Rome, and Vienna. Jurriaan Stelder, VP Alliances and Industry Affairs at Etihad, expressed excitement about expanding their codeshare network, offering guests convenient access to Air Serbia's leisure and business destinations, including Belgrade, Bucharest, Budapest, Thessaloniki, Tirana, Skopje, and Sofia.
Boško Rupić, the General Manager of Commercial and Strategy at Air Serbia, emphasized the advantages of the partnership by saying that by partnering with Etihad, they increase the number of places their flights can go and the number of connections passengers can make. For passengers flying with Air Serbia, this means more options, more freedom, and more ease. Customers may now check in once for their whole travel and schedule connecting flights with simplicity.
You may earn or spend Guest miles throughout the merged networks and enjoy the benefits of tier status with Etihad Guest, the reward program shared by both airlines. Customers of Etihad Airways and Air Serbia will have a better travel experience thanks to the codeshare agreement, which went live on January 30 and flights started on February 3.
