Etihad launches Johannesburg flight

Etihad Airways launches a service to Johannesburg. The flight took off from Abu Dhabi International Airport on 1 December. The latest route follows Etihad Airways’ ambitious plans to link Abu Dhabi to the world’s most important commercial and cultural centres, and will provide a major service to the 5,000 South African nationals based in the UAE.

“The UAE and South Africa have enjoyed a tremendous bilateral relationship for many years and the new Etihad Johannesburg service will significantly enhance this,” says Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saif Al Nahyan, chairman of Etihad Airways.

“Guests will be offered both choice and flexibility with the service, whilst enjoying Etihad’s world-famous hospitality.”

Etihad flight EY603 flies from Abu Dhabi to Johannesburg at 0045 hours every Thursday and Saturday, with the return flight, EY604, leaving Johannesburg at 0950 hours on the same day.

Guests will fly on a Airbus A340-300 configured to host 10 Diamond guests, 30 Pearl guests, and 225 Coral guests.


The new route has been launched only a month after Etihad Airways started its three weekly flights to Toronto via Brussels.
