Etihad Airways is launching a second daily flight between Abu Dhabi and Amman in March.
“The double daily year-round schedule will provide greater choice to local passengers traveling between Abu Dhabi and Amman, with attractive timings of early afternoon and evening departures from the capital cities of the UAE and Jordan, respectively,” the UAE’s national airline said in a statement.
The additional flights, operated by an Airbus A320 with 16 seats in business class and 120 in economy, aim to improve connectivity between Abu Dhabi and a wider network of destinations across Asia and the Indian subcontinent.
“Increasing frequency to some of our destinations globally is a focus as it ensures more travel options for guests looking for greater flexibility. We are therefore delighted to soon offer double daily year-round flights between Abu Dhabi and Amman to cater to growing local demand, and boost business and leisure travel to and from Jordan’s capital,” Etihad Airways CEO Peter Baumgartner said. “With improved schedules, we are also offering attractive timings to benefit residents in the UAE and Jordan, and create even better connections over Abu Dhabi to many markets across our network.”
Etihad currently serves more than 110 passenger and cargo destinations in 62 countries.
