Etihad Airways´ flights to and from Switzerland will become an all-Boeing 787 Dreamliner operation with the aircraft being deployed on the Abu Dhabi — Geneva route, effective 25 March 2018, the company said.
The Dreamliner flights to Geneva will complement the airline´s existing 787 Dreamliner scheduled services connecting Abu Dhabi and Zurich, becoming the fifth European city to be served by the carrier´s rapidly growing fleet of next generation aircraft.
Etihad Airways currently operates daily flights between the UAE´s capital city of Abu Dhabi and both Geneva and Zurich.
Introduction of the 787 Dreamliner will also see a scheduling change that will continue to provide attractive timings for customers traveling to and from Geneva. Etihad Airways will be the only airline operating out of the UAE to offer an early morning arrival into Geneva, and the revised timings will also improve connectivity to a wider network of destinations across Asia and the Indian Subcontinent.
Etihad Airways has a fleet of 18 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners operating from Abu Dhabi to 17 destinations worldwide — Amman, Amsterdam, Beijing, Beirut, Brisbane, DÃ¼sseldorf, Madrid, Melbourne, Nagoya, Perth, Riyadh, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo, Washington and Zurich.
Etihad Airways´ three-class Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners include eight First Suites, 28 Business Studios and 199 Economy Smart Seats, offering superior levels of comfort, entertainment and in-flight connectivity. On-board dÃ©cor and lighting have been inspired by contemporary Arabian design, including the spectacular dome of the newly opened Louvre Abu Dhabi, complementing the signature ´Facets of Abu Dhabi´ identity introduced by the airline during its livery relaunch in 2014. Etihad Airways has pending deliveries of 53 Dreamliners.
