Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, is demonstrating its commitment to business by expanding service to Frankfurt, Germany.
From 1 May, the airline will add four weekly flights to its daily frequency, bringing the total number of weekly flights to Frankfurt to eleven. The additional flights will be operated by one of Etihad’s ultramodern Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, designed with customer comfort in mind and featuring 28 Business Class seats and 262 Economy Class seats.
The increase in flights demonstrates Etihad’s commitment to the vital German market and comes days after the airline announced it would begin service to Düsseldorf on October 1.
Etihad Airways’ Chief Revenue Officer, Arik De, stated, “We are pleased to offer our guests more flights to Frankfurt, one of Europe’s most important airports.”
He added, “The increase in frequency also means greater connectivity to our growing network and the opportunity to welcome more visitors to Abu Dhabi where they can enjoy our world-renowned hospitality, culture, leisure activities and cuisine.”
Although it is well-known for its financial activities, Frankfurt also has a rich cultural history, and the old town, with its half-timbered houses, cathedral, museum embankment, and Goethe House, is popular with the city’s thousands of visitors each year.
Etihad passengers travelling to or from Frankfurt can use the airline’s Rail & Fly service to travel by train from any Deutsche Bahn or SNCF station.
Currently, tickets are available for purchase on Etihad.com and the airline’s mobile app.
