Etihad Airways introduces new scheduled service to Barcelona

Posted 4 June 2018 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways has introducted a new scheduled service linking Abu Dhabi, capital of the UAE, and Barcelona, Spain, effective 21 November 2018.

 

The route will initially be operated five times a week by a two-class Airbus A330-200 before becoming a daily operation from 31 March 2019

Peter Baumgartner, Chief Executive Officer Etihad Airways, said: “As one of the largest unserved markets from our Abu Dhabi base, Barcelona - a hub of culture, commerce, tourism, education, fashion and science, has witnessed a significant increase in travel demand from the emirate, and from across our wider network.

“We are now delighted to announce the first direct link between these two important global hubs. We are confident it will prove very popular with UAE and Barcelona-based customers, allowing us to extend our acclaimed inflight service, hospitality and flair to this vibrant Mediterranean city, and to build on the flourishing cultural and commercial ties between the UAE and Spain.”
