Etihad to fly to Edinburgh

[ July 10, 2014   //   ]

Etihad Airways is to launch non-stop daily flights between its home hub at Abu Dhabi and Edinburgh next year. The route will be operated by Airbus A330-200 aircraft with a 168-tonne cargo capacity per week in both directions, and will offer connections destinations across the Gulf, Asia, Australia and Africa.

Edinburgh is Etihad Airways’ first Scottish destination, and its third departure point from the UK. It currently offers triple-daily flights from London, and double-daily flights from Manchester.

On 28 May, rival Qatar Airways opened a new five-days-a-week 787 route from Edinburgh to its home hub, Doha.
