Etihad Airways launches fourth year-round daily service to LHR
The airline will introduce a two-class Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on one of its four daily London services
Etihad Airways will up its services from Abu Dhabi to London Heathrow by adding a fourth year-round daily service between the two capitals from October 27 2019. The new service introduces a mid-morning departure from Abu Dhabi and a late evening departure from London Heathrow.
Etihad Aviation group chief commercial officer Robin Kamark said: “The flagship Abu Dhabi to London route is tremendously popular with point-to-point business and leisure travellers, and those transiting beyond our hub and we recently boosted frequencies between the two cities to meet increased demand at peak travel times. Adding a fourth year-round flight will provide much needed capacity and optimised timings and easy connections to key destinations across the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia.
“The new service demonstrates our commitment to the crucially important UK market, and ensures we provide our customers with all the benefits of a next-generation fleet across all 42 weekly departures to and from the United Kingdom.”
In addition to the four daily flights into the UK capital, Etihad Airways also operates two daily Boeing 787 Dreamliner services between Abu Dhabi and Manchester.
