Etihad Airways increases flights to Riyadh

Posted 12 November 2019 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways has announced a fourth daily flight on its route from Abu Dhabi to Riyadh effective 8 December.

 

The additional service will be operated by an Airbus A320 configured with 8 seats in Business and 150 seats in Economy. 

Robin Kamark, chief commercial officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “The introduction of the new fourth daily service to Riyadh is demonstrative of our commitment to the Saudi market, and of the increase in demand on this core route. This has been boosted by warm relationship enjoyed by the UAE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and by the recent easing of entry visa regulations for tourists entering the Kingdom.

“Riyadh is a key market on our global network, and the additional service adds yet more attractive timings to both business and leisure travellers flying between both capitals, as well as more options for travellers connecting through Abu Dhabi onto Etihad’s global network. As Etihad and Saudia continue to strengthen their partnership, the new flight will also provide convenient travel options to our customers, allowing increased codeshare connectivity on joint services.”
