ETIHAD Airways’ new winter flying programme starts on October 25, and by January 2010, will be almost 15 per cent more extensive than the same period last year, with 950 flights planned to operate each week.
New flights to Hyderabad in India from November this year will join the airline’s newest routes of Chicago and Cape Town, launched last month.
The winter 2009/2010 schedule aims to offer air travellers a greater choice of flights and additional services to Athens, Istanbul, Beirut, Cairo, and Kathmandu, as well as improved connections to many destinations. Flights to Athens will rise from three per week to five from November 1 and then daily from January 1, 2010. Istanbul flights will increase from four flights a week to five from November 1. The additional flights will provide more choice for people travelling to and from Abu Dhabi and a greater number of weekly connections to Melbourne and Sydney.
Etihad’s network across the Middle East and North Africa region will be strengthened with increased services from Abu Dhabi to Beirut, from 14 to 18 flights a week, and Cairo, from seven to 10 a week, starting on January 1, 2010.
The airline’s Asian flying programme will be boosted with an increased number of flights to Kathmandu from four per week to a daily service, in a move aimed at providing greater flight options to European air travellers.
