Jakarta and Manchester were added in March, and Dhaka, Paris and Casablanca will follow in next few months.
Etihad Airways has announced the addition of three new routes: Dhaka, Paris and Casablanca.
Etihad will launch four flights a week to Dhaka in Bangladesh from May 3, increasing to five per week from 5 June 2006; it will launch six flights a week to Paris Charles de Gaulle from June 1; and will begin flying four times a week to Casablanca on July 1.
“The last 12 months has seen Etihad continue to grow at a rapid pace with the addition of 14 new international destinations, and the arrival of our first purpose built Boeing and Airbus fleet,” said H.E. Dr. Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saif Al Nahyan, chairman of Etihad Airways.
March saw the airline start flights to Jakarta and Manchester. Etihad says it is on track to serve 30 destinations by the middle of the year. Its long term goal is to serve 70 destinations by 2010.
“We aim to build on this network throughout 2006, carrying our guests to the world’s most popular destinations whilst providing them with Etihad’s unique luxury and hospitality,” said Sheikh Ahmed.
