Etihad Airways will soon be adding more Boeing 787-9s to its operations as five new aircraft are set to be delivered throughout a seven-month period beginning May 2016. While the carrier’s Dreamliners currently only serves Brisbane, Washington D.C., Singapore, and Zurich, the new aircraft will expand the carrier’s Boeing 787-9s reach to Dusseldorf, Perth, Shanghai, Istanbul, and Johannesburg. The extra capacity would enable Etihad Airways and its partner airlines in Europe to grow the business and leisure travel market from the UAE and countries such as the UK, France, and Italy.
“Since introducing our first 787 into commercial service in February, we have enjoyed excellent feedback from guests about our ground-breaking cabin interiors that have set a benchmark for high service levels in the region and across the world”, said James Hogan, president & CEO of Etihad.
