Etihad Airways launches direct flights between Abu Dhabi and Jaipur, India

Etihad Airways

Etihad Airways has commenced direct flights from Abu Dhabi’s Zayed International Airport (AUH) to Jaipur International Airport (JAI).

The new route, which is now Etihad’s 11th Indian city, was celebrated with a welcome ceremony at Jaipur International Airport on June 19, 2024.

Located in Northwestern India, Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan state and is known for its historic forts and buildings painted pink in anticipation of Queen Victoria’s visit in 1876.

Etihad said the new route enables more visitors to explore Abu Dhabi, and travelers flying from Jaipur to the United States can take advantage of the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facility at AUH Airport, streamlining the immigration process and ensuring a hassle-free journey.

The start of the Jaipur service further underlines the airline’s deepening commitment to the Indian market, where the airline has increased its capacity by a third over the past 12 months.

“With the resurgence of outbound travel from India, we are thrilled to start four weekly flights to Jaipur, a significant cultural and commercial center,” said Antonoaldo Neves, CEO of Etihad Airways in a statement.

“By establishing this crucial air link with Rajasthan, we aim to meet the increasing demand from travelers in and around the region, providing them with convenient access to Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and seamless connectivity to our extensive global network,” Neves added.

The flights will be serviced with aircraft from the Airbus A320 family, and will operate on the following schedules:

EY 0366 depart AUH 03:05 local time arrive JAI 08:05 local time (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday)

EY 0367 depart JAI 11:00 local time arrive AUH 13:00 local time (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday)
