Dubai-based carrier Etihad has seen traffic on its flights to Australia increase by 106 per cent, it has been revealed.

According to official figures from the organisation cited by the Australian, this was down to an increase in available services and an extra 1,000 seats a week for passengers.

The carrier’s Australian offerings will reach 21 on March 30th, when it is to introduce flights to Melbourne.

Etihad’s local manager, Lindsay White, said: “Generally speaking, last year we did particularly well in terms of the overall number of passengers that have been carried in and out of Australia.”

He added that he hopes this will continue to grow as the airline continues to improve its offerings.

Etihad was launched in 2003 with its first flight to Al Ain and has since provided services to almost 14 million passengers going on more than 87,000 flights.

The carrier is soon to embark on a design programme which will see all its aircraft get an overhaul, it was reported by Design Week in January.
