Etihad Airways Deploys Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to Casablanca
To meet increased demand, Etihad Airways will deploy a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to Morocco on its daily service from Abu Dhabi to Casablanca, Morocco with effect from 1 May, 2018.
The three-class technologically advanced Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft features 8 private First Suites, 28 Business Studios and 199 Economy Smart Seats.
The introduction of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on the service will also see a scheduling change that will optimise timings for customers travelling to and from Casablanca.
Etihad Airways will maintain an early morning arrival into Casablanca and operate a revised mid-morning return service that will improve connectivity to a wider network of destinations including Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Tokyo.
Etihad Airways also operates a third weekly service to Rabat. The extra flight will operate on Saturdays until 12 May, and also from 30 June to 29 September using an Airbus A330-300.
The extra flight has been added to provide more choice to the increasing number of point-to-point leisure and business travellers between the UAE and Morocco.
Since May 2007, Etihad Airways has been codesharing with Royal Air Maroc (RAM), placing its ‘EY’ code on RAM’s services from Casablanca to Agadir, Marrakech and Tangier.
Pending government approvals, Etihad Airways will also codeshare on Royal Air Maroc’s services from Casablanca to Abidjan in Ivory Coast, Conakry in Guinea, and Dakar in Senegal.
Royal Air Maroc codeshares on Etihad Airways flights to Morocco, placing its ‘AT’ code on Etihad services from Abu Dhabi to Casablanca and Rabat.
