Etihad launches Moscow route

17 Aug 2008 by Mark Caswell

Etihad Airways
will commence flights from its Abu Dhabi base to Moscow this December. The new
five-times weekly route starts on December 1 (the day before the carrier begins
flights to Almaty in Kazakhstan – see online news July 23).

Flights will
depart Abu Dhabi at 0940 on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday,
arriving into the Russian capital at 1405 the same day. This will allow
passengers travelling from the UK to connect in Abu Dhabi and travel on to
Moscow, as the carrier’s daily flight EY018 from London arrives into Abu Dhabi
at 0725.

The return leg
leaves Moscow’s Domodedovo airport at 1455, arriving back into Abu Dhabi at 2105.
The first Etihad flight out of Abu Dhabi to London is EY011 at 0245.

The route will be
served by A319 aircraft configured for 84 in economy and 20 in business, except
on Thursday when a A320 will ply the route, with 120 in economy and 20 in
business.

Etihad recently
launched flights to the Belarusian capital of Minsk (see online news June 17),
and opened a new business class at Abu Dhabi International airport in May (see
online news May 21).
