A result of increased demand, Etihad Airways will be launching a new second daily flight between Abu Dhabi and Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport, which is scheduled to run between October 27, 2019, and May 10, 2020.
Operated by an Airbus A320, the extra services will provide more convenient travel options between the two capital cities, granting travellers the opportunity to select between a daytime and evening departure from both Abu Dhabi and Moscow.
With this extra flight, passengers will also benefit from improved connectivity through Etihad Airways’ Abu Dhabi hub to Australia, India, Sri Lanka, Seychelles, Maldives, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines.
Chief commercial officer, Etihad Aviation Group, Robin Kamark stated: “Since launching our first scheduled flights to Moscow in 2008, the route has proved very popular, enjoying strong point-to-point business and leisure demand. The addition of the second flight underscores the importance we place on the Russian market, by providing our customers greater flexibility, convenience and easy transit through Abu Dhabi to key points across Asia and Australia.”
