Etihad Increases Flights to Pakistan

Etihad Airways has increased its flights to the northern Pakistan city of Lahore from seven to 11 a week. Etihad will now offer 27 weekly flights from four destinations in Pakistan that, along with Lahore, include Karachi, Islamabad and Peshawar.

The additional services will be operated by A320 aircraft fitted with 16 Pearl Business Class seats and will increase capacity by 21% on the route.

These services also improve the number of connections over the airline’s Abu Dhabi hub to more than 500 connections a week (representing an increase of 20%) to a number of key destinations in the GCC and Europe.

Kevin Knight, Etihad Airways’ Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said: “The addition of the new flights will further strengthen commercial and cultural ties between Pakistan and the UAE and will lead to continued strong growth in traffic flows between Lahore, Abu Dhabi and beyond to many key destinations across our global network.”
