Etihad switches to all-Boeing 787 on Swiss route
Etihad Airways’ flights to and from Switzerland will become an all-Boeing 787 Dreamliner operation effective March 25, 2018.
The state-of-the-art flights connecting Abu Dhabi and Geneva will complement the airline’s existing 787 Dreamliner scheduled services connecting Abu Dhabi and Zurich, becoming the fifth European city to be served by the carrier’s rapidly growing fleet of next generation aircraft.
Etihad Airways currently operates daily flights between the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) capital city of Abu Dhabi and both Geneva and Zurich.
Introduction of the 787 Dreamliner will also see a scheduling change that will continue to provide attractive timings for customers travelling to and from Geneva.
Etihad Airways will be the only airline operating out of the UAE to offer an early morning arrival into Geneva, and the revised timings will also improve connectivity to a wider network of destinations across Asia and the Indian Subcontinent.
Etihad Airways has a fleet of 18 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners operating from Abu Dhabi to 17 destinations worldwide – Amman, Amsterdam, Beijing, Beirut, Brisbane, Düsseldorf, Madrid, Melbourne, Nagoya, Perth, Riyadh, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo, Washington and Zurich.
Etihad Airways Chief Executive Officer, Peter Baumgartner, said with another of the airline’s popular European destinations joining its 787 Dreamliner network, “we are giving more guests the opportunity to experience our next generation aircraft. ”
