Etihad Airways P.J.S.C. Key Developments

Etihad Airways Enters East India with Launch of Daily Flights to Kolkata

Etihad Airways launched a daily flight on the route between Abu Dhabi and Kolkata, the airline's 11th destination in India, and its 15th destination in combination with network partner Jet Airways. This new service will support the growing demand from air travelers who are keen to fly between West Bengal and the Middle East, Europe and North America via Abu Dhabi home base.

Etihad Airways Introduces New Boeing 787 Service from Abu Dhabi to Dusseldorf, Germany

Etihad Airways has introduced its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner into commercial service from Abu Dhabi to Dusseldorf, Germany. Etihad Airways revolutionary new B787 interiors feature 8 First Suites, 28 Business Studios and 199 Economy Smart Seats, offering superior levels of comfort, entertainment and in-flight connectivity. On-board decor and lighting has been inspired by contemporary modern Arabian design, complementing the new 'Facets of Abu Dhabi' design identity recently introduced by the airline. Etihad Airways' order for two variants of the B787 (-9 and -10), is one of the large for the type, totaling 71 aircraft. The airline will place the aircraft on other key medium and long-haul routes such as Washington DC, Mumbai, Moscow and Brisbane, with more destinations being added as the airline takes delivery of more of the type. The airline will also begin taking delivery of B787s in a two-class configuration from 2016. The wide-body Boeing 787-9 is a stretched version of the advanced medium to long-range twin engine B787-8, with a range of up to 8,300 nautical miles and a cruising speed of Mach 0.85. It is 206 feet in length and has a wingspan of 197 feet. The lightweight composite materials used in the aircraft mean that the B787 uses up to 30% less fuel than other aircraft in its category and as a result produces a comparable reduction in carbon dioxide emissions. The B787 also uses a number of new technologies to ensure that the aircraft's noise footprint is more that 60% smaller than other aircraft of its size.
