Etihad Airways is to increase its number of flights to Dublin to 10 per week from March 2010, an increase of 150 percent in less than three years, the airline announced on Thursday.
The national airline of the UAE launched its service to the Irish capital in July 2007 with four flights, increasing to a daily service in March 2008.
James Hogan, Etihad Airways' CEO, said: "Dublin has been one of our most successful ever destination launches, with more than 300,000 people flying on these services since launch and an average seat factor of 80 percent.
"The latest increase in our Irish flying is indicative of the huge confidence we have in this important market."
Supporting this increase in services, Etihad is planning a new lounge at Dublin airport, which is set to open in 2010.
Based in Abu Dhabi, Etihad currently offers flights to over 58 destinations in the Middle East, Europe, North America, Africa and Asia.
