Travel Daily ME - - News -

Eti­had Air­ways has in­tro­duced its flag­ship Air­bus A380 air­craft on its sec­ond daily ser­vice be­tween the UAE cap­i­tal and New York JFK.

All 14 weekly flights be­tween the two cities are now op­er­ated by the dou­ble-decker air­craft.

The su­per­jumbo has re­placed a three-class Boe­ing 777-300ER pre­vi­ously op­er­at­ing one of the air­line’s twice daily flights. The new de­ploy­ment means New York will join Lon­don and Syd­ney as an all-A380 op­er­a­tion.

Peter Baum­gart­ner, Eti­had Air­ways Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, said, “The re­sponse we have re­ceived from our guests trav­el­ling be­tween Abu Dhabi and New York since we first launched the A380 ser­vice two years ago has been phe­nom­e­nal.

We are de­lighted to fur­ther ex­pand our world-lead­ing prod­uct to all guests fly­ing to and from the Big Ap­ple.

“By in­tro­duc­ing the A380 on the sec­ond daily ser­vice, we can en­sure that ev­ery flight de­liv­ers the ac­claimed ser­vice and hos­pi­tal­ity, in­no­va­tive prod­ucts and tech­nol­ogy for which we have be­come known the world over.”

In De­cem­ber 2015, the air­line opened a Pre­mium Lounge at New York JFK, mark­ing a sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment in fur­ther im­prov­ing the ground ex­pe­ri­ence for the air­line’s guests.
