Etihad Airways announces two daily flights to Manila

Starting on October 30, Etihad Airways will be having two daily flights to Manila, the capital of the Philippines.

The second daily flight will provide travelers with a total 14 flights per week between Abu Dhabi and Manila and improve connectivity between the UAE and Philippines.

Both flights will be operated on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which has a seating capacity of up to 290 passengers.

“As one of our biggest markets for point-to-point travel, Etihad is proud to offer our guests a greater choice of options and easier access between the UAE and Manila,” said Martin Drew, Senior Vice President Global Sales and Cargo.

“Our double-daily service will provide the large Filipino population in the UAE with convenient access to visit family and loved ones back home and support the recovery in tourism as more holidaymakers flock to discover the stunning islands of the Philippines,” Drew added.

The combined double-daily flights will see Etihad offer 450,000 seats annually between Abu Dhabi and Manila, representing a year-on-year capacity increase of 75 percent.

The additional frequency will also increase the total annual cargo capacity to almost 30,000 tonnes, opening more business opportunities and supporting the growth of bilateral trade.

In Southeast Asia, Etihad will offer up to 56 weekly flights this winter between Abu Dhabi Bangkok with 14 flights per week; and seven flights per week to Phuket, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta. ICA/Expat Media
