In turn, Ethiopian Airlines’ customers will be able to fly to Singapore from Dubai on flights operated by Singapore Airlines.
Under the codeshare agreement, SIA will add its ‘SQ’ code to Ethiopian Airlines-operated flights flying daily between Dubai and Addis Ababa.
On a reciprocal basis, Ethiopian Airlines will add its ‘ET’ code to seven SIA-operated flights per week between Singapore and Dubai. SIA serves Dubai International Airport with 11 flights per week.
