Etihad Airways Increases Abu Dhabi-Cairo Flights To Four-A-Day

Published on : Monday, February 1, 2016

3Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, today announced an increase in capacity between Abu Dhabi and Cairo with the introduction of a fourth daily scheduled flight, effective 27 March 2016.

 

The route has grown to become one of the most popular in Etihad Airways’ network, building on strong commercial ties between the capital cities of the UAE and Egypt. With a large Egyptian population in the UAE, more flights provide greater options for expatriates travelling back home for work or holiday.

 

Etihad Airways’ services are conveniently timed to offer enhanced travel options for business and leisure travellers between the UAE and Egypt with greater choice of flights across the day. Additionally, passengers travelling between Egypt and the GCC, South and North East Asia, and India will benefit from increased and better connecting options over the airline’s Abu Dhabi hub. To India, Etihad Airways and its strategic equity partner Jet Airways offer more than 250 weekly flights across 15 destinations.

Over two million guests have flown on the Cairo route since its launch in 2004, becoming a key market among the 116 global destinations served by Etihad Airways.

 

Kevin Knight, Etihad Airways’ Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said: “Etihad Airways is focused on offering guests more choice. The introduction of a fourth daily flight to Cairo demonstrates our commitment to a market that has shown strong growth in passenger and freight traffic since the route was launched almost 12 years ago.

 

“Attracting both commercial and leisure business, the additional flights linking Cairo and Abu Dhabi with connections beyond will help cater for the growing demand on one of our most popular North African and global routes.”
