Aerolineas Argentinas and Etihad Airways have signed a codeshare deal, which will take effect on 1 February 2015.

Etihad will place its code on Aerolineas' flight from Sao Paulo to Buenos Aires, as well as on Aerolineas' domestic flights and those to destinations in Uruguay, Chile and Paraguay from Buenos Aires.

The cities that Etihad passengers will be able to connect to are: Asuncion, Bariloche, Bahia Blanca, Comodoro Rivadavia, Cordoba, El Calafate, Iguazú, Mar del Plata, Mendoza, Montevideo, Neuquén, Rio Gallegos, Rio Grande, Rosario, Salta, San Juan, Santiago, Trelew, Tucuman and Ushuaia.

We are now able to enhance our business and leisure travel offering between the UAE, Argentina and onwards to the strategically important South American market," says Etihad chief executive James Hogan.
