(eTN) – Information was received that Ethiopian Airlines (ET) and South African Airways (SAA) have expanded their present codeshared flights between Addis Ababa and Johannesburg, adding more shared destinations.

In South Africa, this will be Cape Town, Durban, and Port Elizabeth within South Africa, and Windhoek and Gabarone in the region, with the connecting flights operated by SAA.

In turn, the daily codeshared flights between SAA and ET on the Johannesburg to Addis route, presently operated exclusively by Ethiopian, will see new destinations added like Bahrain and Kuwait in the Gulf region and also Douala and Bamako in West Africa.

SAA is a member of the leading global Star Alliance and it is understood that an announcement about ET becoming an applicant member is now not far off – giving some explanation as to the close cooperation between the two airlines.
