Etihad Airways will increase the number of flights from Abu Dhabi to Frankfurt, citing the importance of the Germany economy.
From May 1, 2023, the national airline of the UAE will increase its current single daily service from Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) to Frankfurt Airport (FRA). boosting weekly flights from seven to 11.
Arik De, Chief Revenue Officer of Etihad Airways explained the increase in frequency would lead to “greater connectivity to our growing network”.
The flag carrier confirmed the additional flights will be operated by one of Etihad’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
The announcement comes after the airline revealed it will be commencing flights to Düsseldorf from October 1, 2023, and Copenhagen on the same day.
The Abu Dhabi-based airline will operate four weekly flights to Copenhagen and three weekly flights to Dusseldorf, also via the Boeing B787 Dreamliner.
“We are pleased to offer our guests more flights to Frankfurt, one of Europe’s most important airports. The increase in frequency also means greater connectivity to our growing network and the opportunity to welcome more visitors to Abu Dhabi where they can enjoy our world-renowned hospitality, culture, leisure activities and cuisine,” De added.
Frankfurt is one of Europe’s major financial hubs and is home to the European Central Bank.
