Posted 31 October 2016 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways' latest Boeing 787 Dreamliner route was launched yesterday with the aircraft touching down in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Mohammad Al Bulooki, Etihad Airways vice president UAE and GCC commercial, said: “Since its launch in 2004, the route has seen consistently strong passenger growth, and to date, we have carried more than 2.5 million guests between Riyadh and Abu Dhabi. Etihad Airways’ decision to offer additional capacity on this important route will undoubtedly be well received in the market. Linking the two capitals of the UAE and Saudi Arabia, with the Boeing 787 further underscores the importance of Riyadh and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to our operations.”

He added: “To experience our world class product, Etihad Holidays and the Hala Group offer our Saudi guests exciting holiday packages which cater to a broad range of interests and include visits to some of the region’s finest beaches, luxury hotels, and the city’s many cultural and sporting attractions.”
