[FRANKFURT] Lufthansa said on Friday it agreed with Etihad to jointly sell tickets for some routes, to tap into the Abu Dhabi-based carrier's strong network between Europe and Asia.

Under the codeshare agreement, the German airline will place its LH code on Etihad Airways' flights between Abu Dhabi and Frankfurt and services between Abu Dhabi and Munich.

Etihad will in turn put its EY code on Lufthansa's long-haul services between Frankfurt and Rio de Janeiro as well as Bogota.

Lufthansa also finalised a deal to lease 38 aircraft and crew from Air Berlin, the smaller German carrier that is part-owned by Etihad.
