Etihad Regional will soon commence a twice-weekly service linking Geneva and Toulouse.

Flight F7464 touched down at Toulouse-Blagnac airport with a traditional water cannon salute. The service was catered by a new 50-seat Saab 2000 aircraft. This is the airline’s first year-round route to France. The airline already operates to Biarritz and Calvi during the summer season and will commence year-round operations to Bordeaux, Lyon and Marseille between May and June.

Maurizio Merlo, chief executive officer of Etihad Regional, said: “The new route is an important milestone in our strategy of expanding operations to key regional cities across Europe. We are confident it will help boost business and leisure ties at both ends.”

From May, Etihad Regional plans to operate a larger 68-seat ATR 72-500 aircraft on the Geneva-Toulouse route. From June, the airline will also increase the Geneva-Toulouse services to three flights per week.
