Etihad Airways last night touched down in Kolkata as the airline made its return to the city. With a total of seven weekly nonstop services, the airline will once again connect India’s financial capital, Kolkata, with the world through Abu Dhabi.
Flight EY256 departed Abu Dhabi Airport at 1:50pm on 26 March and touched down at Kolkata’s Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Airport at 8:10pm. Flight EY257 departed Kolkata at 9:05pm on 26 March, landing in Abu Dhabi shortly after midnight. All times are local.
The flights will be operated with a two-class Airbus A320 aircraft, offering 8 seats in Business Class and 150 in Economy. The flight is conveniently timed to offer seamless connections to destinations across the airline’s growing global network of 67 destinations.
From dune bashing in the desert to relaxing on its pristine beaches, soaking up rich UAE heritage and culture, or exploring attractions and theme parks such as Yas Waterworld, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and family-favourite Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, the UAE capital offers leisure travellers a rich variety of memorable experiences.
Passengers flying from Kolkata to the United States can benefit from the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facility in Abu Dhabi International Airport, the only US immigration preclearance service in the region that allows passengers to clear US immigration while in Abu Dhabi.
