More Boeing 787 Routes for Etihad

Etihad Airways will fly its Boeing 787s to five more destinations this year. With a phased delivery of five

new aircraft of the type over a seven-month period starting in May, the 299-seat Dreamliners will be deployed as replacements on daily scheduled services to Düsseldorf, Perth, Shanghai, Istanbul and Johannesburg.

The UAE carrier currently operates five such planes, serving Brisbane, Washington, Singapore and Zürich from Abu Dhabi, and with a further 66 Boeing 787s due to be delivered over the next few years, the specific jets will become Etihad Airways’ flagship long-haul aircraft.

James Hogan, president, Etihad Airways, said that since introducing Boeing 787 in February 2015, the airline enjoyed excellent feedback from guests and has set a benchmark for high-service levels in the region and across the world.
