Etihad Airways plans to increase Airbus A380 service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Abu Dhabi International Airport in response to heightened demand from guests traveling between the two destinations.
Beginning on June 1, 2017, the airline will upgrade its second flight between Abu Dhabi and New York JFK to its award-winning A380 aircraft which features The Residence, the only three-room suite available in commercial airline operation, and its award-winning First Apartment cabins.
The new service will join the airline’s existing daily A380 service, replacing the current daily Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Etihad Airways first began welcoming guests on board its first A380 flight between New York JFK and Abu Dhabi in November 2015.
Etihad Airways first introduced daily, nonstop, round-trip flights into New York JFK on October 26, 2006, and this fall, the airline will celebrate 10 years of service between Abu Dhabi and the New York.
Etihad Airways currently offers 45 weekly return flights between Abu Dhabi and six U.S. cities, including Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, New York JFK, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. Through Etihad Airways’ hub in Abu Dhabi, the airline offers passengers from the United States direct access to the U.A.E. capital, and seamless connections to the Middle East, Africa, Indian Sub-continent and South East Asia.
