Etihad Airways is planning more flights to Scotland, it has emerged.
The Gulf carrier launched its first service to the country, a non-stop daily operation between Abu Dhabi and Edinburgh, last week (see news, June 8).
The airline said that expansion at Edinburgh could follow the same path as Dublin, where a second daily flight was added last year (see news, January 2014).
Etihad CCO Peter Baumgartner told The Scotsman: "It is a good example of a potential development plan."
He refused to confirm whether Edinburgh or Glasgow would receive the second Scotland service.
Last year, CEO James Hogan revealed Etihad plans to launch a second service between Scotland and Abu Dhabi in 2019 (see news, July 2014).
