The airline will increase frequencies between the cities from 24 April
Etihad Airways has announced that it will operate two daily flights on its New York route.
Launching on 24 April 2023, the airline will fly twice a day, seven days a week, on the Abu Dhabi to New York route, providing a total of 14 weekly non-stop services to John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK).
The New York flights will be operated with both Airbus A350 and Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
With 14 flights per week to New York and daily services to Chicago and Washington, Etihad will offer a total of 28 weekly services this summer between Abu Dhabi and the United States.
Commenting on the announcement, Etihad Airways senior vice president Global Sales & Cargo Martin Drew said: “Etihad is responding to customer demand for increased frequency to New York and our well-known reputation for high-quality customer experience. Boosting our flights to New York gives our guests even greater options across key business and leisure destinations in our expanding global network.
“Our guests travelling to the US can use our US pre-clearance facility, the only United States Customs and Border Protection facility in the Middle East. This allows passengers bound for the United States to process all immigration, customs and agriculture inspections in Abu Dhabi before they board, avoiding immigration queues on arrival in the US.”
