Etihad Airways and easyJet enter into new partnership

©Etihad Airways to partner with easyJet

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, has become the most recent airline to partner with easyJet. This new partnership means customers can purchase tickets through the easyJet worldwide website, connecting the two airlines’ networks and opening new and exciting possibilities for travel between Europe, Africa, the Azores and the UAE. The collaboration comes into effect immediately.

The partnership follows easyJet’s accelerated and successful roll-out program with world-leading flight comparison search engine Dohop, which powers the easyJet worldwide website connecting its European network with long-haul flights. For Etihad, this has been achieved using the NDC (New Distribution Capability) platform providing technical capability for new partnerships previously not possible.

The partnership with easyJet and Dohop is the UAE national airline’s first use of this technology and Etihad plans to add more airlines and travel partners to its NDC portfolio in 2020.
