Etihad Airways will launch new seasonal flights to Malaga in Spain, the popular gateway to the province of Andalucía from 26 June to 13 September 2020.
The Three weekly flights will operate via the Moroccan capital, Rabat, using a three-class Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner featuring 8 private First Suites, 28 Business Studios and 190 Economy Smart Seats
Together with Madrid and Barcelona, Malaga will be Etihad’s third destination in Spain, further boosting the airline’s successful operations to the Iberian Peninsula.
The introduction of the aircraft will also provide new belly-hold cargo capacity between southern Spain and Abu Dhabi, and beyond to destinations on Etihad’s global route network.
The number of visitors from the UAE to Spain has been rising rapidly, thanks in part to a successful Schengen visa waiver programme introduced for UAE nationals in 2015.
