Etihad Airways now serving Vancouver (well sort of... via a codeshare)

I thought I would bring this Etihad news to our readers since they were one of the big sponsors of our 10th Anniversary contest last year and some of you won Etihad Guest miles in that contest that perhaps you can use on this route if you have earned even more Guest miles!

Recently, Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways began a full code share agreement with Germany's airBerlin, you may have seen some of the bonus offers announced by us when the partnership launched and as some of you may or may not know, airBerlin serves Vancouver during the summer months. With the full partnership between airBerlin and Etihad that means you can earn and redeem Guest Rewards miles for this flight.

   EY 1013 Vancouver Dusseldorf 12:30 07:10+1 Wed & Sun
   EY 024 Dusseldorf Abu Dhabi 11:50+1 20:20+1 Wed & Sun
   EY 023 Abu Dhabi Dusseldorf 02:00 07:00 Wed & Sun
   EY 1016 Dusseldorf Vancouver 09:45 10:45 Wed & Sun

Service started on May 13th, 2012 with flights every Sunday. Frequency increases to twice a week from June 13th, 2012 every Wednesday and Sunday up until October 21st, 2012.

For those of you down east, Etihad serves Toronto directly from Abu Dhabi as well.
