Etihad Airways has reported it plans to add daily service between Dallas/Fort Worth and Abu Dhabi in response to heightened demand from guests traveling between the two destinations, the company said.
The company said beginning February 2, 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 tons of more cargo capacity each week to facilitate the movement of international freight to and from Dallas/Fort Worth.
Etihad Aviation Group is the national airline of the United Arab Emirates,
comprising four business divisions: Etihad Airways, Etihad Airways Engineering, Hala Group and Airline Equity Partners. From its Abu Dhabi base, Etihad Airways flies to, or has announced plans to serve, 117 passenger and cargo destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas.
