National flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia opened six new routes to Europe and one new route to the Middle East on Sunday, following a code-sharing agreement with Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways.

The new six destinations are London and Manchester in the UK, Paris in France, Moscow in Russia, Athens in Greece and Muscat in Oman.

"Under the new agreement, Garuda also moved its international hub from Dubai to Abu Dhabi as of Sunday, Dec. 2," said Garuda Indonesia Spokesman Pujobroto through a written statement made available on Sunday. The Abu Dhabi stopover was taken into effect during the Jakarta-Amsterdam flight on Sunday at 7 p.m. local time.

Garuda Indonesia CEO Emirsyah Satar said that Etihad would be the company's main partner in western bound routes, while Etihad would become Garuda's partner in eastern bound routes.

"Through Abu Dhabi international airport, the Garuda passengers have better access to more than 80 cities in 50 countries in Europe, North America, Middle East and Africa," he said.

The code-sharing agreement was signed on Oct. 18 in Doha, Qatar. Under the agreement, Etihad will place its "EY" code on Garuda's services on Jakarta-Denpasar and Jakarta-Kuala Lumpur routes.

Garuda will also places its "GA" code on Etihad's flights from Jakarta to up to 31 destinations in the Gulf Cooperation Council, Levant, Africa, Europe and North America. (cor/lfr)
