Etihad Airways will introduce a new second daily flight between Abu Dhabi and Moscow’s Domodedovo airport, which will operate seasonally between 27 October and 10 May 2020.
The additional flight will be operated by a two-class Airbus A320 featuring modern Business and Economy cabins and the airline’s award-winning service and hospitality.
The new service will provide more convenient travel options between the two cities as passengers can now choose between a daytime and evening departure from both Abu Dhabi and Moscow.
Together with the existing service, travellers will also benefit from improved connectivity through Etihad’s Abu Dhabi hub to Australia, India, Sri Lanka, Seychelles, Maldives, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines.
Russia is the second largest source market for inbound tourism to the UAE with 820,000 Russian tourists visiting the country in 2018. The trade exchange between the UAE and Russia reached US$ 3 billion last year.
