etihad-airbus-a380-1200x600Etihad Airways plans to upgrade its second daily Abu Dhabi – New York’s JFK airport service to an Airbus A380, in response to an increased demand.

 

The new Airbus A380 service, set to start in June 2017, will replace the current Boeing 777-300ER aircraft deployed on the route. The airline introduced the A380 to New York last November.

 

In December 2015, the airline opened a new premium lounge at New York JFK, located at Terminal 4, the second of its class in the United States after Washington Dulles.

 

“The response we have received from Etihad Airways guests traveling between Abu Dhabi and New York since we launched the service nearly a decade ago has been phenomenal, and we are delighted to further expand our world-class product for all guests traveling to and from New York,” said Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways’ Chief Executive Officer.

 

Etihad will celebrate 10 years of service between Abu Dhabi and New York in October.

 

Besides its acclaimed The Residence cabin product, Etihad’s A380s offer nine First Class Suites, 70 Business Class seats and 415 Economy Class seats. The Residence by Etihad is exclusive to Etihad Airways’ fleet of A380s, which currently serve London’s Heathrow, Sydney New York JFK, Mumbai and Melbourne.

 

To date, Etihad operates 45 weekly flights between Abu Dhabi and the U.S., including Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
