Alitalia and Etihad Airways have signed a codeshare agreement from the start of the summer season in April 2010, subject to government approvals.

Under the proposed deal, Etihad will place its two-letter ‘EY’ code on a number of services operated by Alitalia from Milan to Rome and Naples, and between selected European destinations and Rome, including Frankfurt, Geneva and Munich. In turn, Alitalia will place its ‘AZ’ code on Etihad’s flights between Milan and the airline’s Abu Dhabi home base, and on to Bahrain, Muscat, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Bangkok, Sydney and Melbourne.

Etihad currently operates five direct services to Milan (Malpensa) per week.
