Etihad has added flights to the French city of Nice to its summer schedule.

The airline will operate a twice-weekly B787 service on Wednesdays and Sundays from June 15 between Abu Dhabi and Nice Côte d’Azur airport.

This marks the fifth summer route announced by Etihad, with flights to Crete, Malaga, Santorini and Zanzibar also starting in June.

Martin Drew, senior vice president global sales and cargo, commented:

“As one of the most popular destinations on the French Riviera, Etihad Airways is delighted to add Nice to its summer network in 2022.

“This is the first time Etihad will be operating flights to Nice and Etihad is confident it will appeal to a broad range of leisure travellers looking to satisfy their wanderlust this summer.”

Abu Dhabi recently changed its testing requirements, meaning that fully vaccinated travellers no longer need a pre-departure PCR test to enter.
