S7 Airlines has commenced a fare sale for these joint services, which will operate daily from March 28, 2010. The flights will be serviced by Etihad Airways’ modern Airbus A320 fleet.

“We are happy to cooperate with Etihad Airways, one of the best airlines in the world in terms of quality of service. Now passengers of S7 Airlines will also be able to experience the award-winning service offered by our partner,” said the commercial director of S7 Airlines Vadim Besperstov.

“We are very pleased to enter into this code share agreement with S7. We view this partnership as a natural extension of our successful daily services into Moscow that commenced in December, 2008. We look forward to working with S7 to enable passengers from all over Russia to travel to Abu Dhabi and beyond,” said James Hogan, CEO of Etihad Airways.
