Etihad Airways has decided to launch another new service from China, with flights from Beijing to Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates, starting December 7. The service will operate with a weekly flight using a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The airline resumed services between Abu Dhabi and Shanghai in late July this year, which has helped meet the large demand from travellers in the UAE, China, and other countries in the Middle East, Europe, and Africa.


With the second weekly flight added to Etihad’s global network, the airline becomes the only carrier in the MENA region to operate non-stop passenger flights departing from both Shanghai and Beijing. Martin Drew, Senior Vice President Sales and Cargo, Etihad Aviation Group said in a statement that China continues to be a strategically important market for Etihad and resuming an additional passenger route connecting China with Abu Dhabi is a welcome development.


He mentioned that being granted the rights to operate the second weekly flight by the Chinese government was huge recognition of the unrelenting joint efforts by the airline, testing institutions in the UAE, and the authorities in both countries, in the battle against COVID-19. He also shared that Etihad is tremendously grateful for the support of the authorities, its customers and partners, as well as its employees in the most challenging of times, and stated that the airline is standing ready to fly more frequently to China when possible.
