Etihad Flies ‘Blue Moon Rising’ to Brisbane

Etihad Airways commences its new schedule of daily flights between Abu Dhabi and Brisbane via Singapore tomorrow – and to mark the occasion Etihad will operate ‘Blue Moon Rising’ – its Airbus A330-200 painted in Manchester City Football Club colours. Blue Moon Rising

James Hogan, Chief Executive, said that the new daily service would add an extra 1,048 seats a week to the Abu Dhabi-Singapore-Brisbane route. “The additional capacity puts Etihad Airways in a stronger than ever position in the Singapore and Australian markets. It enables us to compete on a more level playing field than in the past.

“Daily flights – combined with a world-leading guest experience, access to more destinations worldwide than any other Middle Eastern airline, and seamless connections in Abu Dhabi and to Virgin Australia services in Brisbane – deliver our Australian and Singaporean guests a winning proposition.

“The new schedule also offers more to the thousands of business and leisure travellers, particularly from the Middle East, UK, Ireland and Europe, who are heading to Singapore and the state of Queensland in ever-increasing numbers.”
