daily flights start to sydney
Etihad Airways’ Abu Dhabi to Sydney service will increase from three flights-a-week to daily from Friday 29 June.
The flights to Australia were launched on 26 March and since then the Sydney route has established itself quickly as one of Etihad’s most popular destinations.
Following the success of the Sydney service Etihad is keen to expand its Australian network further and is examining several potential new destinations.
James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ chief executive, said: “Prior to the launch of the Abu Dhabi to Sydney service we knew it would be popular with business and leisure customers, but the demand we have received has outstripped all expectations.”
“We are now looking forward at the flights increasing to a daily frequency which will ensure more customers can enjoy the Etihad experience as they head ‘down under’.”
From 29 June Etihad flight EY450 will depart daily from Abu Dhabi at 10.10am, arriving in Sydney at 6.15am the following day.
The return service EY451 departs from Sydney at 2.35pm, arriving Abu Dhabi 11:25pm. All times are local.
