Etihad Airways Launches Additional Flights to New Holiday Destinations

The UAE’s national airline, Etihad Airways will soon be offering its passengers with a wider selection of flights and improved connections to more worldwide holiday destinations as part of its winter 2009-10 schedule. Featuring a new service to Hyderabad in India and with additional routes to Athens, Istanbul, Beirut, Cairo and Kathmandu, among some of the highlights; Etihad Airways will be serving new holiday destinations as well as increasing the frequency of flights for popular existing ones.

Etihad’s new winter flying programme will be starting on 25th October and by January 2010 it will already be almost 15% larger than the same period last year with as many as 950 flights planned to operate each week.

"The winter programme for 2009-10 demonstrates our commitment to provide greater depth to the Etihad Airways global flight network. The increased frequencies will provide air travellers with a greater choice of flights into and out of Abu Dhabi and better connectivity with the rest of our network," said James Hogan, Etihad Airways chief executive.

The Abu-Dhabi based company that takes millions of passengers to Abu Dhabi holidays all year-long, will also be receiving 3 new A320 aircraft during the winter period in orcer to support the frequency increases to short and medium haul destinations in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Commenting on this new fleet addition Hogan added: "Etihad's fleet growth is an integral part of the airline's network expansion and the new narrow-body A320 planes, which will be delivered during the winter, will be put to good use."

With this move the airline hopes to achieve a more flexible schedule for travellers worldwide and strengthen its popular routes to back tourism into the UAE with more flexibility for Abu Dhabi holidays and Dubai holidays, as well as other popular destinations that they serve in the Middle East.
