Etihad Airways B787 arrives in to Riyadh
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.”
