Etihad Airways launched daily flights between Abu Dhabi and Kolkata (Calcutta), the airline’s 11th destination in India on its own, and its 15th destination in combination with network partner Jet Airways. Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways’ Chief Commercial Officer, said, “This new service will support the growing demand from air travelers who are keen to fly between West Bengal and the Middle East, Europe and North America via our Abu Dhabi home base.”

Kolkata is the main commercial and financial hub of East and North-East India with a metropolitan population of approximately 14.1 million people. The city is home to the Kolkata Stock Exchange and has recently experienced a major economic rejuvenation driven by the expanding IT sector.

Etihad Airways’ lead-in fares for a return flight from Abu Dhabi to Kolkata (including all taxes and surcharges) start from AED 1,315 for Economy Class and AED 3,150 for Business Class.

Etihad Airways operates a two cabin A320 aircraft between Abu Dhabi and Kolkata which is configured to carry 136 passengers, with 16 in Business Class and 120 in Economy Class.
