TOUCHES DOWN


Etihad Airways’ inaugural passenger flight to Ahmedabad touched down at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport today. The new daily, two-class A320 service to Ahmedabad is the airline’s ninth service to India and another step in expanding its presence in the Indian Subcontinent and connecting key strategic cities with its home base of Abu Dhabi.

In the lead up to the flight, Etihad Airways invited a number of trade partners and agents on a splendid ride on the Ahmedabad Eye Balloon Safari, before going to the airport to witness the arrival of the inaugural flight EY216 as it was welcomed with a traditional Indian lamp lighting ceremony.

Furthermore, the Ahmedabad Eye balloon has been prominently branded with the Etihad Airways logo for the past week to announce the new service which will offer nearly 1,000 seats a week into the Gujarati city.

Etihad Airways’ President and Chief Executive Officer, James Hogan, said: “Etihad Airways is committed to serving the Indian market and people, whether in India or the diaspora.  We are delighted to launch this new service to the fifth largest Indian city and to serve our customers in Gujarat.

"We are confident that the addition of the Ahmedabad service will further strengthen commercial and cultural ties between India and the UAE and will lead to continued strong growth in traffic flows between India, Abu Dhabi and beyond.”

With the addition of Ahmedabad, Etihad Airways now flies to nine Indian destinations including the cities of New Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai, Kozhikode, Thiruvananthapuram, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Kochi with a total of 59 flights to India per week.
