Ethiopian and Azul Brazilian Airlines enter into codeshare agreement
September 27, 2017: Addis Ababa-based Ethiopian Airlines and Azul Brazilian Airlines have entered into a codeshare agreement effective October 01, 2017.
Through the codeshare partnership, Ethiopian Airlines will add its flight code (ET) in Azul’s operations; hence, customers will be able to purchase tickets directly from Ethiopian Airlines sales channels to fly to seven different Brazilian destinations operated by Azul. Reciprocally, Azul airlines will market Ethiopian’s vast network throughout Africa and beyond.
Girma Shiferaw, A/VP Corporate Strategy and Alliance, stated, “The codeshare agreement will entitle our esteemed customers travelling between Asia/Middle East/Africa and Brazil, the best possible connectivity options to multiple Brazilian destinations. The agreement will also underpin people-to-people, investment and trade and tourism ties between Africa and Brazil.”
Marcelo Bento, Azul's alliances director, said, “The codeshare with Ethiopian Airlines will be very important to strengthen our international presence, especially for customers travelling from Africa, Middle East and Asia to Brazil. They will now be able to enjoy the convenience of buying tickets and experiencing the excellent service of Azul on flights from our country.”
Initially, Ethiopian Airlines may share its code in Azul's operations from São Paulo (Guarulhos) to Belo Horizonte, Curitiba, Goiania, Porto Alegre, Cuiabá, Foz do Iguaçu and Florianopolis. These routes offer fast and convenient connections for customers leaving Addis Ababa, Ethiopia's capital, to São Paulo. Moreover, the agreement works reciprocally; allowing both airlines’ customers to enjoy connectivity in their respective hubs.
Ethiopian Airlines currently flies to more than 100 international passenger and cargo destinations in 5 continents, out of which 55 are in Africa. Azul, in turn, concentrates its two largest distribution centers in São Paulo (Viracopos) and Belo Horizonte with more than 200 departures for more than 80 Brazilian destinations.
