In a bid to cater to increasing summer numbers, effective 2 July 2014, Etihad Airways will increase its services to Beirut and Amman. The two cities currently have 18 flights per week, this will increase to a triple daily schedules.
The additional flights will add over 800 seats per week from Abu Dhabi. The flights will be operated with an A320 aircraft fitted with 16 business class seats and 120 economy class seats.
James Hogan, president and chief executive officer of Etihad Airways, said: “The Middle East network has been performing strongly. This increase in our services is indicative of huge confidence we have in this important regional market.”
Both routes have been successful for the airline carrying 2.1 million travellers since inception.
