Etihad Airways has confirmed it will be terminating flights between Abu Dhabi Int'l and São Paulo Guarulhos, Brazil with effect from March 26 of next year, reports ch-aviation.

The Emirati carrier said in a statement that the route, its only scheduled service to South America, had been severely affected by the Brazilian economic downturn as well as a weakening Real.

“The performance of the route has fallen short of company expectations and the difficult decision has been made to indefinitely suspend operations,” it said.
