Etihad ups services in Mena routes
abu dhabi — Etihad Airways is increasing capacity between its Abu Dhabi hub and key markets of Amman, Beirut, Cairo, Casablanca and Rabat to cater to the peak June-September travel period, while additional services to Dammam will be year-round.
Extra flights and the deployment of bigger aircraft in the Middle East and North Africa will provide local guests with more choice and greater convenience travelling during the holiday season.
Dammam will have a fourth new daily flight; Amman will get a second new daily flight; Beirut will have four new flights a week, with a Boeing 787 to be introduced; Cairo will get a fifth new daily flight; Casablanca will see an aircraft upgrade to an Airbus A340; and Rabat will get one extra weekly flight.
Dammam in Saudi Arabia will initially be served with an additional three morning flights a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from June 26, rising to a daily service on July 9. The capacity increase to the largest city in the kingdom’s Eastern Province will raise frequency on the route to four daily services year-round.
