Etihad Airways will increase its Abu Dhabi-Moscow services from daily to double daily on June 1, and then to triple daily from October 1. The increase will offer 5,712 seats a week between the two capital cities with service aboard an Airbus A320. Etihad has offered service to Domodedovo airport since December 2008, carrying more than 400,000 travelers. The increase in flight frequency is directly related to the route’s double-digit passenger growth rising 36 percent over 2012 figures. James Hogan, president and CEO of Etihad Airways, said, “With flights three times per day, Etihad Airways provides more convenient services to Abu Dhabi, the UAE, and across our global network.” Beginning June 1 flights are scheduled to leave Abu Dhabi at 2:05 a.m. and 8:45 a.m., arriving in Moscow at 7:25 a.m. and 2:05 p.m. respectively. Flights from Moscow will leave at 8:40 a.m. and 3:15 p.m., arriving at 1:50 p.m. and 8:25 p.m. From October 1 an additional flight will leave Abu Dhabi at 3:00 p.m. and arrive in Moscow at 8:20 p.m.; on its return leg, it will depart the Russian capital at 1:45 a.m. for a 6:55 a.m. arrival at Etihad’s home base. The flight has an estimated duration of 5 hours and 30 minutes.
