Etihad Airways Marks 10 Years of Flying to Qatar with Additional Frequencies

June 15, 2016 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Etihad Airways is celebrating 10 years of flying to Qatar this summer by launching nine additional weekly flights on the Abu Dhabi – Doha route reinforcing its commitment to one of the airline’s key markets in the Gulf.

Effective 1 August 2016, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates will increase weekly frequency to Qatar’s capital city to 37 services. The new daily morning flights as well as the early evening departures on Thursdays and Saturdays provide more flexibility and greater convenience and have been timed to cater for the needs of business travellers both in Abu Dhabi and Doha.

The extra frequencies will provide travellers to and from Doha with greater choice and travel options on Etihad Airways’ network across the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Asia, Indian Subcontinent and North America. The new services are also timed to coincide with the peak summer travel months.

Since the Doha route was launched in 2006, Etihad Airways has steadily increased frequency to meet demand, and to offer more connectivity to the growing number of global destinations served from its Abu Dhabi hub.

Daniel Barranger, Etihad Airways Senior Vice President Global Sales, said: “Qatar is a key market for Etihad Airways. Since 2006, we have progressively developed the Abu Dhabi – Doha route to four daily flights, and what better way to celebrate our 10th anniversary linking the two capital cities than by upgrading this important route with nine new flights each week, further demonstrating our commitment to the Doha market.

“With an improved schedule to and from Doha, greater network reach and more connectivity, we look forward to giving our guests increased choice and access to even more destinations we fly to via our Abu Dhabi hub.”

Guests travelling to Abu Dhabi are able to take advantage of more flight options to connect to an array of destinations across Europe, including London, Manchester, Paris, Dublin, Rome, Munich, Milan, Geneva, Madrid, Athens and Istanbul. Delhi, Mumbai, Kathmandu, Dhaka, Calicut, Cochin and Hyderabad are among the many destinations across the Indian Subcontinent offering more convenient connections.

Travelling from Doha to Etihad Airways’ six gateway cities in the United States – New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington and Dallas – guests can also avail the unique US Pre-Clearance immigration and customs facilities at Abu Dhabi International Airport. This ensures guests arrive in the United States as domestic passengers, avoiding the need to complete lengthy immigration formalities upon arrival.
