Etihad launches two new routes

ETIHAD Airways reveals its plans to launch new routes to Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) and Ahmedabad (India).
An Airbus A320 aircraft will be used for the flights carrying both cargo and passengers, which will depart from the carrier’s base in Abu Dhabi (UAE) from November.
The Addis Ababa route will initially operate five times a week, increasing to daily in 2013, the company says.  Flights will be daily on the Ahmedabad service.
“Addis Ababa, a major East African hub and Ahmedabad, the fifth largest city in India, will make significant contributions to traffic flows to Abu Dhabi and beyond,” states James Hogan, Etihad’s chief executive officer.
