Commenting on this was Arik De, the airline’s Chief Revenue Officer:
“With our convenient departures from Abu Dhabi, our second Kuala Lumpur flights will optimise timings for UAE residents wishing to have a break in Malaysia”.
“Moreover, the new daytime and night-time flights from Kuala Lumpur allow travellers reaching Abu Dhabi more options to explore what the city has to offer in terms of business and pleasure.”
“It further reaffirms our commitment to bringing more guests to enjoy Abu Dhabi, as well as connecting to our growing global network.”
These new flights mean that Etihad will provide a grand total of 77 weekly flights into Southeast Asia, as the carrier’s global expansion plans continue.
All eyes will be on the carrier to see how these new daily flights will perform and whether there is scope to expand further going into the future.
