Etihad Airways doubles A380 services to JFK

Posted 1 June 2017 · Add Comment

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. Guests can now enjoy the consistency, convenience and comfort of a seamless A380 service in both directions.

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.”
