ABU DHABI Etihad Airways will resume direct flights between Beijing and  fAbu Dhabi from December 7 with a daily flight.

The flight will be operated by a two-class (economy and business) B787 Dreamliner.

Etihad resumed services between Abu Dhabi and Shanghai in late July this year, which has helped meet strong demand from travellers in the UAE, China and other countries in the Middle East, Europe and Africa, said the carrier.

Martin Drew, Senior Vice President Sales & Cargo, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “China continues to be a strategically important market for Etihad and resuming an additional passenger route connecting China with Abu Dhabi is a welcome development. Being granted the rights to operate the second weekly flight by the Chinese government was huge recognition of the unrelenting joint efforts by the airline, testing institutions in the UAE, and the authorities in both countries, in the battle against COVID-19.

“Etihad is tremendously grateful for the support of the authorities, its customers and partners, and its employees in these most challenging of times, and Etihad stands ready to fly more frequently to China when possible.”

With the second weekly flight added to Etihad’s global network, the airline becomes the only carrier in the MENA region operating non-stop passenger flights departing from both Shanghai and Beijing.#
