Etihad Airways has increased its flights to Pakistan’s capital city, Islamabad, from nine to eleven a week. Etihad Airways will now offer 31 weekly flights from four destinations in Pakistan; Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar.
The additional frequencies will provide improved connections from Islamabad to Europe and the GCC via Abu Dhabi. The schedule will be operated using A320 aircraft fitted with 16 pearl business class and 120 economy class seats.
Kevin Knight, chief strategy and planning officer, Etihad Airways, said, “The addition of the new flights is further proof of the strong commercial and cultural ties between Pakistan and the UAE and will lead to continued strong growth in traffic flows between Islamabad, Abu Dhabi and beyond to many key destinations across our global network.”
Etihad Airways also unveiled new winter timings for services to Lahore and Peshawar starting from October and November. The new schedule will improve connections to destinations in the Arabian Gulf, the United Kingdom, Europe and North America.
