Etihad Airways has exciting news for travellers planning their summer vacations, with the introduction of a new direct service between Abu Dhabi and Lisbon. Effective July 2, 2023, this new route will provide three weekly flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Sundays. The airline is thrilled to connect Abu Dhabi to Portugal’s capital city, just in time for the summer holidays.
According to Antonoaldo Neves, Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways, this is the first time the airline is introducing flights to Portugal, which is one of the most popular summer destinations for 2023. The coastal city of Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in Western Europe and a great entry point to exploring the rest of the country. Its perfect beaches, historic castles, fantastic nightlife and welcoming people make it a must-visit destination.
Etihad Airways is returning to the Spanish coastal city of Malaga, famous for its miles-long sandy beaches, culture, and food, with twice-per-week flights on Wednesdays and Sundays from June 18, 2023. The airline will also be launching flights to the popular Greek island of Mykonos, with twice-per-week services on Mondays and Fridays from June 16, 2023. Mykonos is famous for its world-class beaches, restaurants, entertainment, and ancient Greek history.
With the addition of these new routes, Etihad Airways will offer travellers nearly 160 weekly flights to 21 destinations in Europe this summer. The airline will provide 20% more seats than in 2022, providing travellers with even more options and flexibility when planning their summer vacations.
The tickets to all three new destinations are now available for booking on etihad.com. Etihad Airways has implemented several health and safety measures to ensure the safety of its passengers and crew, such as mandatory pre-flight COVID-19 testing, enhanced cleaning procedures, and the use of personal protective equipment by all crew members.
In conclusion, Etihad Airways’ new direct service to Lisbon and return to Malaga and Mykonos, coupled with its extensive health and safety measures, makes it an excellent choice for travellers planning their summer vacations.
