Etihad Airways to increase Maldives frequency during peak summer months 2017

Posted 20 January 2017 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways has added four additional weekly flights on the Abu Dhabi – Malé route, increasing frequency to the idyllic Maldives to 11 services a week between 1 July and 17 September 2017.

The capacity increase will cater to high demand during the peak summer season. The announcement comes as the Abu Dhabi-based airline completed five years of operations to the Maldives.

The summer expansion will be supported by a two-class A320 aircraft operating the route, with 16 Business and 120 Economy seats. The four extra flights each week will provide more options for local passengers travelling between Abu Dhabi and Malé with an early morning arrival into the Maldives islands.

Overall connectivity to and from key destinations in the GCC and Europe will increase and, new two-way connectivity will be established from markets such as Edinburgh, Jeddah, Madrid, Moscow and Zurich. 

Over the past five years, Etihad Airways has carried more than 450,000 passengers on the route, with the majority travelling to the Maldives from Abu Dhabi, the GCC and key European markets.
