Etihad will offer daily flights to Dublin, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur. Additionally, more weekly flights to Barcelona, Brussels, Johannesburg, Madrid, Tokyo, and Vienna have been added to the carrier's summer schedule.
"Etihad is operating additional flights during the busy summer period, which will introduce additional belly capacity across key routes for Etihad Cargo's customers," said Martin Drew, Senior Vice President – Global Sales & Cargo, Etihad Aviation Group.
More passenger flights will also be offered from mid-June, with seasonal routes to Greece, France, Spain, and Tanzania being introduced to the network. "Cargo transported during the season will benefit from Etihad Cargo's extensive road feeder service across the US, Europe, and Asia," added Drew.
