Good news for keen travelers, and fans of the windy city, Etihad are launching a new route to Chicago…
New flights to Chicago from Abu Dhabi mean good news for tourists and business travelers alike. Chicago is the third largest city in the US and a popular tourist spot, seen by many as a rival to New York.
Here’s what Etihad chief executive James Hogan said: “The new service will provide a daily flight for business and leisure travellers as well as enhance commercial and cultural ties; not only between Abu Dhabi and Chicago but also between the UAE and US."
Etihad will operate a three cabin Airbus A340-500 wide body aircraft on the Abu Dhabi to Chicago service which is configured to carry 240 passengers with 12 in first class, 28 in business class and 200 in economy class.
