Growing Demand: Etihad Airways Increases Capacity to Africa
To cater for growing summer demand, Etihad Airways is increasing capacity between its Abu Dhabi hub and some key markets in Africa including Cairo, Casablanca and Rabat.
Extra flights and the deployment of bigger aircraft in the Middle East and North Africa will provide local guests with more choice and greater convenience travelling during the holiday season.
Between August 1 and September 10, Egypt’s capital Cairo will have an additional seven midday flights a week, taking frequency up to five daily services.
In Morocco, the daily Casablanca services will be upgraded from an Airbus A330-300 to A340-600 aircraft between August 1 and September 10.
Frequency to Morocco’s capital city of Rabat will increase from two to three a week with a new Sunday service operating between August 6 and September 3. The additional flights to Rabat will be operated using an Airbus 330-300.
