October 19, 2012
Etihad Airways has signed a new codeshare agreement with Indonesian flag carrier Garuda Indonesia. The two carriers plan to expand the scope of the agreement to not only include more destinations in each other’s network but also, according to James Hogan, Etihad Airways president and chief executive officer, “stimulate trade in foodstuffs, manufactured goods and other commodities between Indonesia and trading partners in the western hemisphere which, in turn, will contribute to the profitability of the airlines’ cargo operations on the route”.
