Etihad Airways has announced the city of Boston as its fourth United States destination. As of March 31, 2024, the carrier will commence connecting services from Abu Dhabi to Boston four times weekly.

Gateway to the American Northeast

Etihad Airways has proudly introduced its latest gateway to the American Northeast. Chief Executive Officer, Antonoaldo Neves, spoke on the news of the new service, saying,

“We are delighted to introduce flights to Boston, which opens up Abu Dhabi to visitors from the American Northeast and across the United States.”

Etihad’s venture into Boston marks its fourth US gateway, joining the ranks of established services to Chicago, New York, and Washington.

Complemented by flights to Toronto in Canada, this expansion firmly anchors Etihad as a key player in fostering seamless connectivity between the United States and Abu Dhabi.

Partnership with JetBlue

With innovation at its core, Etihad Airways has forged a strategic partnership with JetBlue, granting travelers not only direct access to the Boston market but also convenient connections to a multitude of North American cities.

This collaboration paves the way for a travel experience that is as smooth as it is exhilarating, inviting explorations across the continent.


Exploring Abu Dhabi

For American travelers, the new Boston route opens a gateway to boundless adventure in Abu Dhabi. A treasure trove of cultural landmarks awaits, from the iconic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque to the opulent Louvre Abu Dhabi.

The city seamlessly weaves together modernity and tradition, inviting visitors to wander through bustling souks, savor Emirati cuisine, and bask in the warmth of Emirati hospitality.

Boston’s Enduring Charm

Boston, with its rich historical tapestry and iconic landmarks, beckons visitors to step into a world where history comes alive.

As the birthplace of the American Revolution, the city allows you to walk in the footsteps of revolutionaries along the hallowed Freedom Trail, connecting with America’s past in a tangible way.

Sports enthusiasts can catch the excitement at Fenway Park, home to the revered Boston Red Sox, and immerse themselves in the city’s vibrant sports culture.

Boston’s allure extends beyond its history, encompassing a blend of natural beauty and urban energy. From the picturesque Boston Harbor to the serene Boston Common, every corner exudes its own unique charm.

The city’s diverse neighborhoods – including the Italian North End, Chinatown, Cambridge, Beacon Hill, Back Bay, and Charlestown – create a harmonious mosaic of experiences.

Emiratis and Boston

For many Emiratis, Boston holds a special place as a city of education and growth. Its prestigious universities and welcoming ambiance have nurtured lasting friendships and transformative experiences, endearing the city to Emirati students and their families.

Abu Dhabi’s investments in Boston’s healthcare and education sectors have solidified a powerful bond between the two regions.

These collaborations have facilitated knowledge exchange, research, and professional development, strengthening both Abu Dhabi’s and Boston’s offerings in healthcare and education. This partnership highlights the commitment to progress and innovation that defines both cities.

Four weekly Dreamliner flights

Etihad Airways is set to operate four weekly flights to Boston – every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.

Flights will be accommodated by the carrier’s state-of-the-art Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, complete with Etihad’s acclaimed Business Studios and Economy Smart seats.
