  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Etihad Airways B787 9Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, today unveiled plans to fly its Boeing 787s to Istanbul next year. Etihad Airways currently operates five 787s, serving Brisbane, Washington, Singapore and Zurich from Abu Dhabi. With a further 66 Boeing 787s due to be delivered over the next few years, the Dreamliners will become Etihad Airways’ flagship long-haul aircraft.

Besides Istanbul, the carrier will offer daily scheduled services to Dusseldorf, Perth, Shanghai, and Johannesburg from the airline’s Abu Dhabi hub. Etihad Airways will start daily services following the delivery of five new 787s over a seven-month period, beginning May 2016.

“Beginning May next year, Etihad Airways’ newly delivered 787 Dreamliners will replace existing aircraft on our Dusseldorf, Perth, Shanghai, Istanbul and Johannesburg routes, among our most popular markets, giving guests an opportunity to fly on our next-generation aircraft,” said James Hogan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways.

Etihad Airways’ newest 787-9 variant will include highly-acclaimed interiors featuring 28 Business Studios and 271 Economy Smart Seats, offering superior levels of comfort, entertainment and in-flight connectivity. On-board décor and lighting have been inspired by contemporary modern Arabian design, complementing the new ‘Facets of Abu Dhabi’ design identity introduced by the airline during its livery relaunch last year.
