Etihad goes daily to Edinburgh

[ June 12, 2015   //   ]

Etihad Airways is to launch daily flights between Abu Dhabi and Edinburgh in mid-June. Edinburgh is Etihad Airways’ first Scottish destination, and its third point in the UK, alongside a triple-daily operation to London Heathrow and double-daily flights to Manchester.
The Edinburgh service is operated by an Airbus A330-200 aircraft, offering a 168-tonne cargo capacity per week in both directions, with oil and gas equipment expected to be transported to destinations in Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Australia and regions in Africa.
It will also support Edinburgh’s position as a global hub for scientific research, food and drink, oil and gas, and chemical industries.
