Etihad Airways Adds Flights to Shanghai

Our Bureau - : Jan 3, 2023 - : 9:20 pm

Etihad Airways is strengthening air connectivity between the UAE and China, starting with an additional weekly frequency on its Abu Dhabi – Shanghai route from February.

Subject to regulatory approval, the carrier will fly to Pudong International Airport (PVG) two times per week using modern Boeing 787 and 777 aircraft. The airline already has a weekly service to Beijing and a twice-weekly service to Guangzhou. It was in October that Etihad launched nonstop flights between Abu Dhabi and Guangzhou, thus becoming the first international airline to operate long-haul passenger flights to the top three Chinese gateways since the start of the pandemic.

“Etihad Airways is delighted to add a second weekly passenger service to Shanghai following the further relaxation of Covid-related travel measures,” said Martin Drew, Senior Vice President of Global Sales & Cargo at Etihad Aviation Group. “”China is a market of primary importance to Etihad, and as one of the country’s largest financial and economic centres, Shanghai plays a crucial role in our network.”

In June 2022, Etihad had operated the first regular international passenger flight to Beijing when the capital reopened for international direct travel.
