Starting 1 June 2005, Etihad Airways will increase the frequency of its flights to Asia. The airline will introduce daily flights to Bangkok and enhance the service to Colombo to five flights a week. Etihad currently flies four times a week to Bangkok and three times a week to Colombo.
The enhanced services to the two Asian capitals were announced at the Asian Travel Market 2005, currently underway in Dubai.
“This strategic move demonstrates our commitment to providing guests with greater access for travel between the two hubs and it will help us build stronger ties between the UAE and Asia. We are very confident that the increased frequency of flights to Bangkok and Colombo will further motivate our guests to explore this vibrant region rich in tradition and cultural heritage,” said Etihad Chairman H.E. Dr. Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saif Al Nahyan, who is also Chairman of the Civil Aviation Department in Abu Dhabi.
The expansion of Etihad’s services to Asia comes at an important time as the airline gears up for the busy summer season. Asia is emerging as one of the key travel destinations with Bangkok as the major hub in the region. The airline plans to increase its routes to Asia significantly by the end of this year in anticipation of the new aircraft that will support its ambitious expansion plans.
