Etihad Airways is meeting customer demand by boosting flights between Abu Dhabi and Malaysia’s vibrant capital Kuala Lumpur. A second daily flight starts on 15 January 2024, providing guests with 14 flights per week between both cities.
Kuala Lumpur, the dazzling capital city of Malaysia, is renowned for its captivating skyline dominated by the iconic Petronas Twin Towers.

The combined double-daily flights will see Etihad offer 425,000 seats annually between Abu Dhabi and Kuala Lumpur, representing a year-on-year capacity increase of 75%.
The additional frequency will also increase the total annual cargo capacity, opening more business opportunities and supporting the growth of bilateral trade.
