Etihad Airways adds flights to Shanghai
The airline will fly to Pudong International Airport (PVG) twice a week beginning in February 2023
Etihad Airways plans to increase air connectivity between the UAE and China next year, beginning with a weekly frequency increase on its Abu Dhabi-Shanghai route.
Subject to regulatory permission, the airline will fly to Pudong International Airport (PVG) twice a week beginning in February 2023, utilizing new Boeing 787 and 777 aircraft.
Martin Drew, Senior Vice President of Global Sales & Cargo at Etihad Aviation Group said, "Etihad Airways is delighted to add a second weekly passenger service to Shanghai following the further relaxation of Covid-related travel measures. China is a market of primary importance to Etihad, and as one of the country's largest financial and economic centres, Shanghai plays a crucial role in our network.
"Etihad is committed to developing our operation to China, and we look forward to welcoming more travellers on board in the new year to experience our award-winning hospitality."
When combined with a weekly service to Beijing and a twice-weekly service to Guangzhou, passengers will have five weekly nonstop flights between Abu Dhabi and China.
