London - Arabstoday

Etihad Airways is keen to expand its footprint in South America, president and chief executive officer James Hogan said. He said the airline was currently in discussions with South American-based carriers about potential commercial partnerships. Etihad currently has 38 codeshare partnerships with airlines around the globe, resulting in a combined network of 323 destinations, more than any other Middle Eastern airline. Beyond its own organic growth, codeshare partnerships and equity stakes are a significant and growing part of the airline’s expansion strategy. Etihad Airways holds a 30 per cent stake of Air Berlin, 40 per cent of Air Seychelles, three per cent of Aer Lingus and 10 per cent of Virgin Australia. The airline will launch its first route in South America on June 1, 2013, with daily non-stop flights between Sao Paulo and its home base of Abu Dhabi.   Etihad’s service will also provide seamless connections from Brazil to the airline’s global network, offering connectivity over Abu Dhabi to markets in the Gulf Cooperation Council, the Indian Sub-continent and Asia.   Hogan spoke of the significance of the new route, in particular the economic impact.   “Brazil is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, now ranking as the sixth largest since overtaking the United Kingdom in 2011. Bilateral trade between Brazil and the UAE is valued at nearly $3 billion annually, with authorities aiming to lift this to $10 billion within five years.” “There are 25 major Brazilian companies with offices in Abu Dhabi. Mubadala, the development company of the Government of Abu Dhabi, last year signalled its intent to begin investments in Brazil, valued at up to $13 billion,” he said. “According to the Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce, Brazil trade volumes with the Arab world grew by 28 per cent in 2011 to reach $25 billion. This is forecasted to grow by a further 10-15 per cent this year.” “In addition to supporting the growing ties between Brazil and the Middle East, this new route complements Etihad Airways’ recent expansion in North Asia, including the recent introduction of services to Chengdu and Shanghai and the upcoming increase to daily Tokyo services with connections to Nagoya from April 2013,” Hogan said. “With some of the fastest connecting flight times to China and Japan, Brazil’s largest and fifth largest trade partner, respectively, Etihad Airways is providing vital air links between the world’s major emerging markets,” he said. Hogan was in Sao Paulo late last week to meet prominent local diplomats, travel industry executives, media and corporate representatives. From khaleejtimes
