Etihad to increase frequency to Cairo, Lagos

Etihad Airways will increase frequency between its Abu Dhabi hub and Cairo and Lagos later this year to cater to growing passenger demand.

A fifth daily scheduled service will be introduced on the Cairo route, effective October 1, taking frequency to the Egyptian capital up from 28 to 35 flights a week. The new mid-morning departure from Abu Dhabi and return afternoon service out of Cairo will offer local guests in each market additional choice travelling between the two capital cities, said a statement.

During the upcoming peak travel months, Etihad Airways will cater to demand with additional frequency on the Cairo route before making the fifth daily service permanent in October. The new service will also provide convenient connections in Abu Dhabi to and from key cities in North and South Asia, including Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur.

A new Saturday flight to Nigeria’s commercial capital of Lagos, beginning December 2, will add to the weekend travel option, increasing frequency from four to five services each week.

The early morning service from Abu Dhabi and return mid-morning flight departing Lagos will also ensure convenient connections to and from Asia and the Indian Subcontinent, the airline said. -TradeArabia News Service
