Etihad Airways and Aeroporti di Roma (AdR), have celebrated the introduction of a second daily flight between Abu Dhabi and the Italian capital.

 

The inauguration ceremony took place at the innovative E boarding area for international flights at Leonardo Da Vinci International Airport Fiumicino.

Flight EY 85 was greeted with a welcoming cake cutting ceremony by representatives of Etihad Airways and AdR upon arrival in Rome Fiumicino.

Antontella Cataldi, Etihad Airways General Manager Italy, said: “We are extremely proud of having increased the number of flights that connect Rome with our Abu Dhabi hub. Our additional flights demonstrate the importance of the strong economic ties between the UAE and Italy, and our continued support for the growth of bilateral trade between both countries.  This will also make a positive contribution to the tourism industry in Italy and the UAE, offering greater choice to our business and leisure guests travelling between the two countries.”

“We are pleased to welcome the launch of Etihad Airways’ second daily flight from Abu Dhabi to Rome Fiumicino,” added Federico Scriboni, Head of Airline Traffic Development of AdR. “This reinforces the presence of the airline in Rome, highlighting the strategic role played by the Roman market, and caters to the demand for destinations not currently served directly from Rome, such as Australia, which are now accessible seamlessly via Abu Dhabi. Leonardo da Vinci is becoming an increasingly popular gateway, renowned for its excellent services, and boasting a large number of the world’s major international airlines.”
