Subject to regulatory approval, passengers of Hong Kong Airlines will benefit from enhanced access to key destinations across the Middle East and Europe under the partnership, with Hong Kong Airlines' HX code being placed on Etihad Airways' triple-daily flights between Abu Dhabi and Bangkok, together with two upcoming services that will connect Abu Dhabi to Madrid from 29 March 2015 and to Hong Kong from 15 June 2015.

Etihad Airways will place its ‘EY' code on Hong Kong Airlines' flights between Hong Kong and Bangkok, allowing business and leisure travellers to book a round trip between Hong Kong and Abu Dhabi via Thailand's capital. In addition, the code will appear on flights between Hong Kong and Okinawa, a popular tourism destination in Southern Japan.

Flights under the codeshare agreement can be booked from 23 December 2014 via travel agents or through the airlines' sales offices and contact centres. Passengers can travel from 6 January 2015, or in the case of Etihad Airways' Hong Kong and Madrid services, from the launch dates.
