Etihad Airways will add a fourth daily service between Abu Dhabi and Bangkok from 1 July 2015. Etihad Airways launched its Bangkok route with daily flights in April 2004. The Thai capital was one of the airline’s first long haul destinations. It added a second daily service in June 2006 and a third daily flight in April 2012.

Operated by a B777-300ER aircraft, the new service will increase the number of roundtrip flights which Etihad Airways operates between the two cities to 28 per week, and add approximately 5,000 weekly seats to the route.

The new flight will offer business and leisure travellers in the UAE and Thailand the convenience of additional departure and arrival times.  It will also increase capacity for guests connecting to the Bangkok service from other points on Etihad Airways’ global network and from flights to Abu Dhabi operated by its partner airlines.
