Etihad ups JNB flights
Etihad Airways is set to enhance its current Johannesburg to Abu Dhabi (AUH) service with the introduction of three additional flights a week between July and September to cater for the increased demand on the route during summer.
In July, the additional flights will operate on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays with flight EY 601 departing JNB at 09h45 and arriving in AUH at 20h15. Return flight EY 602 will depart AUH at 01h45 and arrive in JNB at 08h15.
In August and September the flights will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays with the same flight times.
The new flights will be operated by a combination of Airbus A330-200 and Boeing 777 aircraft, offering a total of 2 200 additional seats in business class and 21 500 additional seats in economy class over the three-month period.
As from April 1 the airline deployed Etihad Airbus A330-200 configured aircraft on its JNB-AUH route replacing the previous A330-200 Jet Airways configured aircraft that serviced the route.
