Abu Dhabi: Etihad Airways has concluded a wet-lease agreement with Air France-KLM for an Air France Airbus A340-300 for use on the Paris-Abu Dhabi route from May 15 to November 30. Air France will operate the 272 seat aircraft as one of Etihad Airways’ two daily Paris-Abu Dhabi return services — EY37 and EY38 respectively. Last October, Etihad Airways and Air France-KLM forged a strategic partnership which saw the two airline groups work together to create value for each airline. The agreement expanded the UAE flag carrier’s European network with codeshare services beyond Paris to Bordeaux, Copenhagen, Madrid, Nice and Toulouse.
