In the coming winter, Etihad Airways will offer an additional daily service between the UAE and Manila. As of 30th October, there will be a second daily flight between Abu Dhabi and Manila. This will provide guests with a total of 14 flights a week between the two cities. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner, one of the world’s most modern and fuel-efficient airplanes, will operate both daily frequencies. Etihad will offer 450,000 seats annually between Abu Dhabi and Manila with the double-daily flights, representing a 75 percent increase in capacity over last year.
As a result of the increased frequency, the total cargo capacity will increase to almost 30,000 tonnes, enabling more companies to trade with one another and supporting the growth of bilateral trade. This winter, Etihad will offer 56 weekly flights between Abu Dhabi and Manila (14 weekly flights), Bangkok (14 weekly flights), Phuket (7), Singapore (7), Kuala Lumpur (7) and Jakarta (7).
