Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, today commenced daily operations between Jaipur and Abu Dhabi. 

A traditional lamp lighting ceremony greeted the disembarking passengers at Jaipur to celebrate the new service and the airline’s tenth destination in India. 

Craig Thomas, Etihad Airways’ Regional General Manager-Asia Pacific North and Indian Subcontinent, said: “The addition of the Jaipur service reinforces Etihad Airways’ commitment to the Indian Subcontinent.  We are confident that the new flights will continue the strong passenger growth between India and the UAE. 

“The new service will provide travellers from Jaipur with seamless connections to the Gulf region and Middle East, as well as Africa, Europe and North America, via our Abu Dhabi hub.”   

Neerja Bhatia, General Manager – India, Etihad Airways, said: “Jaipur is the perfect addition to our growing network of destinations. Jaipur is a widely recognised premium destination attracting leisure and business travellers from around the world. It also known for hosting many international cultural events, including the renowned Jaipur Literature Festival. 

 “With the addition of the new Jaipur flights, to our existing Delhi services, we now fly to two destinations in the world-renowned Golden Triangle, offering our guests more choice and convenient travel options.” 

Jaipur is known as the pink city for its pink-painted cityscape. It is the capital, and the largest city, of the State of Rajasthan. Renowned for its distinct heritage and landscape, the city has witnessed a 70 per cent increase in tourist arrivals during the past 10 years. It is a modern yet traditional city offering the ideal gateway to ancient, cultural and historical sites within the State.  

Jaipur ranks as the country’s eighth largest economy fuelled by textiles, gems and jewellery, agro-processing, automotive , and mineral-based industries.  

Etihad Airways’ new daily service will be operated with an Airbus A320 aircraft in a two-class configuration, featuring 16 Pearl Business Class seats and 120 Coral Economy Class seats. 

With the addition of Jaipur, Etihad now serves a total of 10 Indian cities including Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kozhikode, Mumbai, New Delhi and Trivandrum.
