Paris will become Etihad Airways latest A380 long-haul destination following London, Sydney, New York and Melbourne. With the aircraft upgrade from a 328-seat Boeing 777, Etihad Airways is able to offer an all-A380 daily service from Paris to both Melbourne and Sydney via the airline’s Abu Dhabi hub.
Etihad Airways is introducing its award-winning A380 on the Abu Dhabi-Paris route this summer as part of seasonal adjustments to the airline’s fleet deployment plan. The aircraft will operate on one of its twice-daily services to the French capital between July 1 and October 28.
The additional capacity will provide business and leisure travelers from the UAE the benefit of experiencing the double-decker aircraft – with a living room, bedroom, and shower in The Residence, and more premium seats in the First Apartments and Business Studios – to meet demand to another popular long haul destination during the peak summer months.
Etihad Airways today also made additional changes to its summer 2017 operation, including changes to the last A340-600 operation on September 30, 2017. Latest changes include the last A340-600 flight to Europe scheduled in late July 2017, and operation adjustment for the A380.
