The extra Airbus A320 services will also significantly improve connectivity over the airline’s Abu Dhabi hub to key destinations in Southeast Asia and Australia.
James Hogan, Etihad Airways President and Chief Executive Officer, said: “Despite the Arab Spring’s impact, this route has continued to perform strongly and over the past eight years our services to Cairo have exceeded our expectations. We are pleased to be able to build on this success with these additional flights.
“Cairo is a special destination for us due to the established cultural and commercial ties between Egypt and the UAE. We expect to see continuing strong demand on this route, particularly from government and business travellers, as well as the Egyptian expatriate population living in Abu Dhabi and across the UAE.”
