Etihad Airways to add A380 on the Abu Dhabi –Paris route

Posted 15 March 2017 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways is to add its A380 on the Abu Dhabi – Paris route this summer as part of seasonal adjustments to the airline's fleet deployment plan.

Paris becomes the airline’s latest A380 long haul destination following London, Sydney, New York and Melbourne. With the aircraft upgrade from a 328-seat Boeing 777, Etihad Airways is able to offer an all-A380 daily service from Paris to both Melbourne and Sydney via the airline’s Abu Dhabi hub.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways chief executive officer, said: “Flying our flagship product to France with additional seat capacity helps fulfil growing demand and meet our guests’ expectations for an even greater travel experience with unmatched luxury, comfort and service.

“Paris is one of our busiest and best performing European routes, so the deployment of this upgraded service will benefit travellers to and from Abu Dhabi, and our popular connecting cities across Asia and Australia.”
