Etihad Airways boosts Brisbane services

Compare Car HireEtihad Airways has announced plans to increase flights between Brisbane and Abu Dhabi from three times a week to a daily service from February 1st, 2013.

This will bring to 28 the total number of flights Etihad Airways operates between Australia and Abu Dhabi, together with partner airline Virgin Australia.

The additional four services will continue to operate via Singapore in both directions and provide a new daily link between the city pairs.

James Hogan, chief executive of Etihad Airways, said the increase in frequency was a game-changing move for the airline on the Abu Dhabi-Singapore-Australia route.

“Going daily to Brisbane and Singapore puts Etihad Airways in a stronger competitive position and will increase the airline’s brand footprint exponentially in these markets.

“We are now able to offer corporate and leisure travellers a more appealing proposition: more flights, more convenience, improved connections and a wider choice of destinations in Europe, the Middle East, Gulf Cooperation Countries, and on the Virgin Australia domestic network.

“These extra flights to Brisbane and Singapore underscore the strategic importance of Australia and the Asia Pacific region and the contribution each makes to the airline’s goal of sustainable profitability.

“We look forward to working with our partners in government and industry to increase business and leisure tourism and to cement the route’s enduring success.”
