Etihad Airways’ Flight EY073 was met with the customary water cannon welcome as it touched down on schedule at Zürich Airport yesterday morning, marking the start of the airline’s new daily non-stop service between Zürich and Abu Dhabi.
The new Etihad Airways service builds upon the
airline’s existing daily flights between Abu Dhabi and Geneva launched on 5
June 2004, bringing to 14 the number of flights linking Zürich and Geneva to
Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, each week.
The new Zürich - Abu Dhabi route is served by an Airbus
A330-300 aircraft configured with 8
seats in First Class, 32 in Business Class and 191 in Economy Class.
