Etihad Airways today announced an increase in capacity between Abu Dhabi and Cairo with the introduction of a fourth daily scheduled flight, effective March 27, 2016.
The route has grown to become one of the most popular in Etihad Airways’ network, building on strong commercial ties between the capital cities of the UAE and Egypt. With a large Egyptian population in the UAE, more flights provide greater options for expatriates travelling back home for work or holiday.
Over two million guests have flown on the Cairo route since its launch in 2004.
Kevin Knight, Etihad Airways’ Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said: “Etihad Airways is focused on offering guests more choice. The introduction of a fourth daily flight to Cairo demonstrates our commitment to a market that has shown strong growth in passenger and freight traffic since the route was launched almost 12 years ago.
