1 min read

An extension to SAA and Ethiopian Airlines’ codeshare took effect this week, with the agreement now including Cape Town, Durban and Toronto, Canada.

Under the extended codeshare partnership, Ehtiopian Airlines’ passengers will benefit from a direct service between Addis Ababa and Cape Town and Addis Ababa and Durban. These routes will be operated by Ethiopian Airlines, with SAA as the marketing carrier. The two airlines already code-share from Addis Ababa to Johannesburg, and between Addis Ababa and Bamako, in Mali, with all these flights operated by Ethiopian aircraft.

In return, the Ethiopina Airlines codeshares on SAA’s aircraft between Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban and Windhoek, in Namibia. SAA customers will now be able to fly on Ethiopian Airlines using the SAA ticket code SA, while their customers will be able to fly on the ET code.
