Etihad Airways Starts New Flight Service between Abu Dhabi and Edinburgh

The airline will use a two-class Airbus A330-200 aircraft to operate the new flight service. A total of 240 seats in Economy Class and 22 seats in Business Class are available for passengers.

This will be a daily service with flight connections onward to vital destinations in the Middle East, Indian sub-continent, Asia and Australia.

Etihad Airways’ President and Chief Executive, James Hogan, said: “Scotland has been on our radar for some time and we are delighted that the first direct connection between its capital, Edinburgh, and the capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi, will be operational from next year.

“The two cities share strong tourism links and the UAE is Scotland’s primary trade partner in the Gulf region, which will fuel strong demand among business and leisure travellers on our non-stop service.

“Travellers will also benefit from convenient connections to many other destinations, both on our own global network and through our relationships with other airlines.”

Edinburgh Airport’s Chief Executive, Gordon Dewar, said: “We are delighted to welcome Etihad Airways to Edinburgh Airport from June 2015.

“The airline will fly direct to Abu Dhabi, giving the people of Scotland access to the United Arab Emirates and offering our passengers even more choice.
