Etihad Airways has said that it will resume flights to East Africa with daily flights to Nairobi from 1 May, 2024.

The schedule of these flights are below:

Flight Number Departure Airport Departure Time Arrival Airport Arrival Time Frequency Aircraft
EY  767 AUH 9:05 NBO 13:15 1234567 A320
EY  768 NBO 18:10 AUH 0:20 1234567 A320

“We are thrilled to be re-starting flights to Nairobi, a dynamic and exciting city in itself and also the gateway to a Kenyan safari, a dream adventure for many travellers, offering a view of the diverse and magnificent wildlife of Africa,” said Antonoaldo Neves, chief executive officer of Etihad Airways.

Etihad will operate these daily flights to Nairobi using its Airbus A320, featuring both business and economy cabins.

Separately, Etihad has expanded its fleet by recently taking possession of a new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner. The new aircraft is one of four Boeing 787 Dreamliners expected to be delivered this year.

The airline is also in the midst of moving its base to the new Terminal A at Abu Dhabi International airport.

Once operational, the new terminal will accommodate up to 45 million passengers per year.

It will be able to process 11,000 travellers per hour and operate 79 aircraft at any given time. At triple the size of the previous terminal, and with flights to 117 destinations worldwide, it will increase both the frequency and reach of flights to and from Abu Dhabi.

Terminal A will will reportedly be the first in the world to include all nine biometric airport touchpoints. In the first phase, biometric solutions will be installed in key areas such as self-service bag drops, immigration e-gates and boarding gates.
