Etihad Airways is to increase capacity on its Abu Dhabi-Dublin route from this summer.
The carrier will roster one of its B777-300ER aircraft on to the six times-weekly EY045 service from Abu Dhabi starting on July 2, adding around 900 seats to the carrier’s weekly capacity on the route.
The aircraft seats 412 passengers (28 in business and 384 in economy), and will replace the A330 currently operating this service.
Etihad’s remaining four weekly flights between Abu Dhabi and Dublin (EY041) will continue to be served by an A330-200 aircraft.
The carrier's CEO James Hogan said the Dublin service "is one of our most successful routes and this increase in capacity is indicative of the confidence we have that demand, especially in the premium cabin, will continue to grow".
