From October 3, Etihad Airways will be introducing its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on the Abu Dhabi-Rabat route. Currently, the flag carrier of UAE deploys its Airbus A330-300 on this route.

The three-class version of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner features eight private First suites, 28 Business studios and 199 Economy Smart seats.

Additionally, Etihad Airways has added a third weekly flight service to Rabat, which will be operated until September 29.

Robin Kamark, chief commercial officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said, “Morocco is a very important destination on the Etihad network, underscoring the close cultural and commercial ties between the kingdom and the UAE. Our flights to Rabat and Casablanca have proved tremendously popular with UAE and Moroccan nationals, and residents. Adding the 787 Dreamliner on all our Moroccan services will now provide our customers flying to both capitals with the same award-winning cabins, innovative seating and products.”
