Etihad adds fourth daily frequency to London Heathrow

July 31, 2019 Headline News No Comments Email Email

Etihad Airways will add a fourth, year-round service between Abu Dhabi and London Heathrow from October, giving more scope for Australian travellers heading to and from Europe.

The new service, from 27 October 2019, will be a mid-morning departure from Abu Dhabi and a late evening departure from London Heathrow.

The airline will introduce a two-class B787-9 Dreamliner on one of its four daily London services. The aircraft is configured with 299 seats: 28 Business Studios and 271 Economy Smart seats.

This complements the three other services which are operated by Etihad’s 486-seat Airbus A380s, which feature The Residence, a luxurious three-room cabin, nine private First Apartments, 70 Business Studios and 405 Economy Smart Seats. These include 80 Economy Space seats with a seat pitch of up to 36 inches.

Etihad Airways chief commercial officer, Robin Kamark, said the airline’s flagship Abu Dhabi to London route is tremendously popular with point-to-point business and leisure travellers, and those transiting beyond Etihad’s hub.

“We recently boosted frequencies between the two cities to meet increased demand at peak travel times,” he said.

“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.”

As well as its four daily flights to London, Etihad Airways also flies two daily Boeing 787 Dreamliner services between Abu Dhabi and Manchester.
