The new flights will be operated with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner

ABU DHABI: Etihad Airways has increased flights to New York, United States. From 15th November, Etihad will add four weekly flights on the Abu Dhabi – New York route, providing a total of 11 weekly nonstop services to John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK).

The new flights will be operated with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, while existing daily services will continue on Etihad's new Airbus A350 aircraft, which has been deployed on the New York route since June. These aircraft types are two of the most efficient in the world, with significantly less fuel burn and CO2 emissions than previous-generation twin aisle aircraft.

Alex Featherstone, Vice President Network Planning & Alliances, said, 'Etihad is enhancing its schedule this winter to provide even more options for our guests across key business and leisure destinations in our global network.

'Our New York service continues to perform strongly, and having already experienced record passenger demand this summer, Etihad is excited to be investing further in this market by building on frequency levels ahead of the peak winter travel period.'

Etihad passengers travelling to the US will be able to take advantage of Etihad's US pre-clearance facility, the only United States Customs and Border Protection facility in the Middle East. This allows passengers bound for the United States to process all immigration, customs and agriculture inspections in Abu Dhabi before they board their flight, avoiding immigration and queues on arrival in the US.

With 11 flights per week to New York-JFK, and daily services to Chicago and Washington, Etihad will offer a total of 25 weekly services this winter between Abu Dhabi and the United States, and over 50% more premium seats than in the previous winter 2021 season.
