Etihad Airways will expand its codeshare agreement with Morocco's national airline, Royal Air Maroc, with effect from 12 December.
The expanded agreement will connect Abu Dhabi and Guinea's capital Conakry, with Etihad operating the Abu Dhabi-Casablanca leg and Royal Air Maroc's flying from Casablanca to Conakry.
The connecting service will be operated twice weekly.
Under the existing agreement, Etihad already places its code on 10 routes across north and west Africa via Casablanca, including Agadir, Fez, Oujda, Ouarzazate, Marrakesh and Tangier in Morocco; Dakar in Senegal; Nouakchott in Mauritania; Bamako in Mali; and Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso.
In return, Royal Air Maroc places its code on regional connections from Abu Dhabi to Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Dubai.
