Etihad Airways this week announced the year-round deployment of its award-winning Airbus A380 aircraft on the Abu Dhabi to Paris route.

The aircraft, which features The Residence, will operate from 1 July on one of its twice-daily services from the UAE capital city to The City of Light.

Paris becomes the airline’s latest A380 long-haul destination following London, Sydney, New York and Melbourne. With the 496-seat aircraft upgrade from a 328-seat Boeing 777, Etihad Airways will offer a daily, all-A380 service from Paris to Melbourne and Sydney via Abu Dhabi.

The aircraft upgauge will also support strong demand to and from many cities across Asia and Australia from Abu Dhabi including Brisbane, Perth, Bangkok, Chengdu, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Manila, Shanghai, Seychelles, Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai.

Flight EY31 has a scheduled departure time from Abu Dhabi at 2.15am which arrives at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport at 7.50am local time.  The return flight, EY32 takes off from the French capital at 10.40am and arrives in Abu Dhabi at 7.30pm.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways Chief Executive Officer, said: “We believe that our  customers travelling to and from Paris will really enjoy what we see as unparalleled comfort and services on board our A380. Flying our flagship aircraft to France helps fulfil growing demand and offers greater travel experiences for the flying public.

“Paris is one of our busiest and best performing European routes, so the deployment of this upgraded service will provide benefits to travellers to and from Abu Dhabi, and our popular connecting cities across Asia and Australia.”
