Etihad Expands German Connections with Air Berlin Codeshare Approval

Etihad Airways has opened up more connections within Germany with the announcement by the German Higher Administrative Court in Lüneburg that their codeshare applications with Airberlin have been approved. 

The German Aviation Authority will approve 26 of the 31 disputed codeshare routes with Etihad Airways until the end of the winter schedule on 26Mar16. Together with the other 50 approved codeshares with Airberlin, 76 of the 81 codeshares are now approved once and for all, that is 94% of the codeshares applied for.

The court’s interpretation of the UAE-Germany Air Services Agreement also means that Etihad Airways will be able to continue with all those codeshares beyond the Winter Schedule, improving the Middle Eastern based airlines range within the heart of Europe.
