Edinburgh Airport launches daily Etihad service to Abu Dhabi
Etihad Airways’ inaugural flight landed at Edinburgh Airport at 07:24.
Edinburgh is Etihad’s first Scottish destination and its third departure point from the UK, alongside London Heathrow and Manchester.
It will offer connections onwards to a number of other destinations in the Middle East, Indian sub-continent, Asia and Australia.
The new route to the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will be operated with an Airbus A330-200 aircraft, with a total of 22 seats in business class and 240 in economy.
Edinburgh Airport began the latest stage of its expansion earlier this year with the announcement of a £50m development. Details
