Oct 08, 2018: Etihad Airways will increase its flights from Abu Dhabi to London Heathrow, from three to four daily services, to meet peak demand this festive season, with effect from December 15, 2018 to January 13, 2019. The flights will be operated by a two-class Boeing 787-9, featuring 28 business studios and 271 economy smart seats.

James Harrison, GM for Etihad Airways in the United Kingdom and Ireland, said, “We are thrilled to announce more flights to London over the festive period. This is a busy time for local guests traveling between both capitals and the extra service will allow more choice and flexibility in their travel.”

The additional services will also provide more connecting opportunities for passengers traveling between London and key destinations on Etihad’s global network. These services will operate in addition to Etihad Airways’ regularly scheduled three daily Abu Dhabi to London services which will continue to operate on three-class Airbus A380 aircraft.

In addition to this, Etihad has also recently announced seasonal frequency increases and aircraft upgrades on a number of key routes to meet increased demand over the peak winter period. This includes additional capacity to Bahrain, Belgrade, Cairo, Istanbul, Medina and Kuwait.
