    Etihad Airways Marks New Dallas/Fort Worth Flights with Cocktail Function

13 Dec 2014 13:30

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), marked the 3 December launch of its service between Abu Dhabi and Dallas/Fort Worth, with an exclusive cocktail function held last night at the Hall of State in Dallas, Texas. 

The event was attended by more than 300 guests, including diplomatic and government officials, business professionals and trade partners.

Guests arriving on the Hall of State red carpet were treated to the warm hospitality of Etihad Airways with traditional Arabian Ayala dancers, Arabic coffee and dates.

The evening started with a champagne reception and canapés while Jazz singer, Ddendyl entertained guests with a lively performance.

Guests mingled while having the opportunity to experience displays of Etihad Airways’ new First and Business Class products which will be introduced on its A380 and B787 aircraft.

Guests were addressed by James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ President and Chief Executive Officer, before enjoying a live 30-minute performance from the popular Italian operatic pop trio, II Volo.

Mr Hogan said: “I would like to thank the UAE Ambassador to the United States, His Excellency Yousef Al Otaiba, and the local government authorities for their support during the airline’s launch of services to Dallas/Fort Worth.

“Dallas/Fort Worth becomes our sixth destination in the US, making it even easier for guests to access our rapidly growing network of 111 cities worldwide. The new route will not only help promote Abu Dhabi and other markets to US, but will also further stimulate business and leisure travel to Dallas from across our global network.”

Notes: Etihad Airways flies three times a week from Abu Dhabi to Dallas/Fort Worth, daily to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington, DC; and twice daily to New York.
