Ethiopian Airlines and South African Airways have entered into an expanded codeshare agreement, signed on October 01, 2016 and projected to be effective as of 2017 summer season.

The revamped codeshare agreement is anticipated to further enhance the cooperation among the two carriers and avail a range of additional destinations for customers to travel to. 

Girma Shiferaw, A/vice president strategic planning and alliances, Ethiopian, said: “As a successful Pan-African carrier, we have an unshakable stance to work in collaboration with all African carriers. Therefore, revamping the already existing codeshare agreement with our partner, South African Airways, emanates from our common ambition and joint effort to expand our footprint to different destinations and better serve our esteemed customers globally. The expanded codeshare agreement between the two carriers enables our customers enjoy the best possible connectivity options to multiple destinations and also plays a significant role in enabling greater people-to-people, investment, trade and tourism ties within Africa as well as with the rest of the World.” 

Acting chief commercial officer at South African Airways, Aaron Munetsi, said: “We are delighted to be able to enhance our relationship with Ethiopian Airlines, Africa’s fastest growing and most profitable airline. This enhanced codeshare agreement enables us to offer our mutual customers more destinations including Durban, Cape Town and Toronto as additions to the existing codeshare flights. This enables both airlines to offer our legendary reliable and world class service to our ever growing markets that demand customer focused service. We believe the partnership will be scaled up further in the future for the betterment of customer service.”
