Etihad adds a fourth daily flight from Abu Dhabi to London

Any expats travelling from the UAE back to their home countries will know that the more options that are available the better.

So, the announcement from Abu Dhabi's national carrier that it will add a fourth daily flight between the UAE capital and London is sure to make British expats happy.

The extra flight will leave Abu Dhabi mid-morning and land at the English capital's Heathrow airport mid-afternoon.

The return flight will leave England late evening.

The airline is also going to run a two-class Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on one of its the four daily London services. It has 299 seats (28 Business Studios and 271 Economy Smart seats), the other three flights will operate with a 486-seat Airbus A380, which have The Residence (a three-room cabin), nine private First Apartments, 70 Business Studios and 405 Economy Smart seats.

Robin Kamark, commercial officer, Etihad Aviation Group Chief, said: “The flagship Abu Dhabi to London route is tremendously popular with point-to-point business and leisure travellers, and those transiting beyond our hub, and we recently boosted frequencies between the two cities to meet increased demand at peak travel times.

"Adding a fourth year-round flight will provide much needed capacity and optimised timings and easy connections to key destinations across the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia.

“The new service demonstrates our commitment to the crucially important UK market, and ensures we provide our customers with all the benefits of a next-generation fleet across all 42 weekly departures to and from the United Kingdom.”

Etihad also runs a twice-daily flight between Abu Dhabi and Manchester.
