Etihad to Go Double Daily on Dublin – Abu Dhabi

Etihad Airways will increase its Dublin – Abu Dhabi service from 10 flights per week to double daily from 15th July 2014. The 40% frequency boost will provide 8,988 seats each week between the Irish and UAE capitals. Etihad Airways

Etihad will operate a B777-300 ER, configured to carry 380 passengers with 40 in Pearl Business Class and 340 in Coral Economy Class, and an A330-200, configured to carry 262 passengers, with 22 in Pearl Business Class and 240 in Coral Economy Class.

The schedule for the double daily flights will ensure connectivity both ways with 800 weekly connections to 45 Etihad destinations in the Middle East, Africa and Asia, including Bangkok, Beijing, Brisbane, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Melbourne, Perth, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo.

James Hogan said: “From the moment we started flights to Dublin in July 2007 it has been one our most successful routes and we are delighted that from this July, seven years later, Etihad Airways will offer guests a double daily service to and from Abu Dhabi.

“The 40% increase in flight frequency will benefit business and leisure travel not only between Ireland and the UAE but also right across the Etihad Airways network, especially countries that have a connection with Ireland such as Australia, Thailand and Malaysia.”

Kevin Toland, Dublin Airport Authority Chief Executive, welcomed the decision: “The partnership between Dublin Airport and Etihad Airways has been hugely successful since the airline launched the Dublin – Abu Dhabi route in 2007. Dublin has long been one of Etihad Airways’ busiest routes and the airline has steadily expanded capacity on the service over the past six years.

“We are delighted that Etihad Airways has announced a 40% increase in frequency for the service, which will operate double daily from 15th July, as it will offer additional choice and convenience to business and leisure travellers.”
