Ethiopian Airlines entered into a code share agreement last week with South Korean Asiana Airlines to enhance the growing cooperation with Star Alliance member carriers.

Ethiopian Airlines said the partnership would provide passengers of both airlines with greater flight options and better connections between Africa and Asia.

Ethiopian Airlines will put its code on Asiana operated flights to and from Hong Kong and Seoul and Asiana will share code on Ethiopian operated flights to and from Hong Kong and Addis Ababa.

"We are delighted to partner with Asiana airlines, which is one of the major airlines in Asia and the agreement will support our commitment towards improving the travel experience of our passengers," Tewolde Gebre-Mariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, said.

The airline said the code share arrangements would offer easier flight choices, shorter transit options and greater convenience to customers.

The Ethiopian Airlines said the four weekly code share flights will be open for sale from August 29.
