Etihad Airways Boeing 787 9 new dimensions

Etihad increases frequency on Dublin-Abu Dhabi route for summer peak

Etihad Airways has increased frequency on its Dublin to Abu Dhabi route during the busy summer season.

The airline will fly to Abu Dhabi up to twice daily, with four additional services, operated by Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. It will operate 11 flights per week to the Irish capital during the summer season.

The additional flights will depart Dublin in the evening, complementing the existing daily morning departure linking Dublin and Abu Dhabi. The two-class 787-9s are configured with 299 seats - 28 Business Studios and 271 Economy Smart Seats.

The airline is offering a free two-night stopover in the Emirati capital to all travellers flying to international destinations via Abu Dhabi. The free Abu Dhabi stopover promotion is available for bookings online through www.etihad.com or via a travel agent, made by December 1, for travel until December 31.

Robin Kamark, chief commercial officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “Ireland is an incredibly important market for Etihad and one that we are proud to have served since 2007. Our services from Dublin connect guests to key markets in Asia, Africa, the Indian subcontinent and of course Australia, one of our largest connecting markets from Dublin. The progressive roll-out of Boeing 787s to key destinations across our network will allow us to enhance our inflight experience, enabling our guests to enjoy the most highly customised Dreamliner cabins in the world.

“These aircraft are quickly becoming the backbone of the Etihad fleet and feature upgraded entertainment systems and connectivity, and of course all our guests will experience our acclaimed service and hospitality. We look forward to our guests experiencing our latest products and choosing to visit Abu Dhabi for their next holiday”

Abu Dhabi offers visitors the chance to explore cultural highlights, great architecture and attractive theme parks, as well as beaches and desert landscapes. The city appeals to solo travellers and couples in search of unique travel experiences as well as families.
