Etihad to fly to Chinese capital


ETIHAD Airways has launched its maiden flight from Abu Dhabi to the Chinese capital Beijing, the latest destination on the airline’s expanding global network.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ chief executive, says,  “To open the new Beijing flights six months prior to the Olympic Games is a special achievement for Etihad Airways and we look forward to welcoming many customers on board our aircraft to the Chinese capital throughout this historic year.”
The new Beijing flights are the main highlight of Etihad’s new summer schedule which offers air travellers a greater choice of services and improved flight connections and is almost 50 per cent larger than the same period last year.
