Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, will increase frequency on the Dallas/Fort Worth– Abu Dhabi route to a daily service early next year in response to heightened demand from guests travelling between the two destinations.
Beginning 2 February 2017, the Abu Dhabi-based airline will add four new flights each week on the route to support the existing Wednesday, Friday and Sunday services.
Etihad Airways, which launched the non-stop route in December 2014, will continue to operate a Boeing 777-200 Long Range aircraft featuring eight First Class seats, 40 Business and 191 seats in Economy Class.
The additional frequencies will also provide 96 tonnes of more cargo capacity each week to facilitate the movement of international freight to and from Dallas/Fort Worth.
Kevin Knight, Etihad Aviation Group Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said: “Since launching our Dallas/Fort Worth service less than two years ago, the response from our guests travelling between Dallas/Fort Worth and our home Abu Dhabiand beyond, has exceeded expectations. We are therefore delighted to further expand this service into a daily operation to meet strong market demand.
