Etihad launches direct route to Vienna Airport from Abu Dhabi
Etihad Airways’ Abu Dhabi to Vienna
Vienna Airport welcomed a new airline on 18 July 2021, with Etihad Airways launching a new route from Abu Dhabi. Etihad now serves the route twice-weekly with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
“We welcome Etihad as a new airline to Vienna Airport serving a new destination,” says Julian Jäger, Joint CEO and COO of Vienna Airport. “Etihad is a strong carrier with a far-reaching route network, and we are delighted with its decision to launch regular scheduled flights to Vienna. The United Arab Emirates in particular is an important market for Austrian tourism, and the new flight connection is a good sign that things are slowly picking up again.”
Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Aviation Group: “As more travellers return to the skies, we’re delighted to introduce twice-weekly flights to Vienna. The 65th passenger destination to be added to Etihad’s growing network, we are confident that its timeless imperial grandeur and vibrant cultural scene will appeal to many travellers.”
