Thank you for reading the news about Etihad Airways announces new seasonal flights to Malaga, Spain and now with the details
Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - Etihad Airways has announced that it will launch new seasonal flights to Malaga in Spain to meet strong customer demand from across the UAE and GCC for flights to the popular gateway to the province of Andalucía.
Three weekly flights will operate via the Moroccan capital, Rabat, from June 26 to September 13, 2020.
Robin Kamark, chief commercial officer of Etihad Aviation Group, said: "Malaga has been on our wish-list for some time and we are tremendously pleased to announce summer season services to the Costa del Sol, a region which for decades has been popular with travellers from across the UAE. This will be the only service between the UAE and the main gateway to Andalucía.
"Together with Madrid and Barcelona, Malaga will be Etihad's third destination in Spain, further boosting our successful operations to the Iberian Peninsula. The new flights will be operated by our next-generation 787 Dreamliners, ensuring we provide the best product and service to our customers heading on business or on holiday."
Etihad Airways' three-class version of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner features 8 private first suites, 28 business studios and 190 economy smart seats. 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.
Malaga, famed as the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, is the major entry point for travellers visiting Andalucía. The city's airport provides easy access by road to the popular holiday destination on the Mediterranean coast, including Marbella, and further inland to the historic cities of Seville, Cordoba and Granada. After Barcelona, Malaga is the second busiest cruise port on the Iberian Peninsula.
