“Our New York service continues to perform strongly, and having already experienced record passenger demand this summer, Ethiad is excited to be investing further in this market by building on frequency levels ahead of the peak winter travel period.”
The airline also services Chicago O’Hare (ORD) and Washington D.C. Dulles (IAD). The additional flights will bring the total number of weekly Etihad flights between Abu Dhabi and the US to 25. Etihad will be offering 50% more premium seats this winter season to the US than it did during the 2021 winter season.
The additional flights will permit more passengers to take advantage of Etihad’s massive international network. Those traveling from New York to Abu Dhabi will be able to reach any of the airline’s 70 international destinations.
Most of these connections are to destinations across the Middle East, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. For those traveling to New York, the airline’s codeshare partner JetBlue can offer service to over 46 destinations across the Americas.
Passengers traveling to the US will use the airline’s unique pre-clearance service. The airline offers a United States Customs and Border Protection facility where passengers will be screened before boarding the flight. This is the only US Customs facility in the Middle East.
By going through customs in Abu Dhabi, passengers can bypass the lines and long waits to go through passengers once in the US. Etihad hopes that the added flights and premium services will aid meet the high travel demand it has been experiencing and retain passengers for future flights.
