In March 2016, Etihad Airways announced that it would resume daily services between Edinburgh and Abu Dhabi for the summer season 2016.James Harrison, UK General Manager for Etihad Airways, said: “Etihad Airways is delighted to be celebrating a hugely successful year of operating out of Edinburgh Airport. Edinburgh has quickly become an important destination for Etihad Airways, which was reinforced by the resumption of  daily flights to and from the airport earlier this year.

 

 

“I look forward to continuing our partnership with Edinburgh Airport, and working together to further establish Edinburgh as one of Etihad’s key global destinations.”The Edinburgh service connects Scottish business and leisure travellers with holiday destinations and financial centres in the Middle East, Indian sub-continent, Asia and Australia, via the airline’s hub in Abu Dhabi.

Destinations in Australia remain an important outbound market for Scots travelling through Abu Dhabi with the airline connecting directly to the cities of Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. Since the 2 nd June new aircraft have been added to Perth with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner now serving the daily operation and an Airbus 380 flying on one of the Melbourne double daily services.
