Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, is proving its commitment to the market by expanding its services to Frankfurt, Germany.
The airline will increase its existing daily frequency by four services starting on May 1 to a total of 11 weekly flights to Frankfurt. The new flights will be run by one of Etihad’s cutting-edge Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, with 28 Business and 262 Economy seats and built with passenger comfort in mind.
The jump in flights underlines Etihad’s commitment to the important German market and comes days after it announced the start of flights to Düsseldorf on 1 October.
Arik De, Chief Revenue Officer of Etihad Airways, said: “We are pleased to offer our guests more flights to Frankfurt, one of Europe’s most important airports.
“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.”
Frankfurt is renowned for its financial operations, but it also boasts a rich cultural heritage. The Goethe House, the cathedral, the museum embankment, and the old town with its half-timbered homes are all favourites with the millions of tourists the city gets each year.
With Etihad’s Rail & Fly service, passengers travelling to or from Frankfurt may take the train from any station on the Deutsche Bahn or SNCF network.
Tickets are currently on sale on Etihad.com and the airline’s mobile app.
