Etihad Airways to operate daily service to Chengdu

Abu Dhabi: Etihad Airways said on Friday it will increase the frequency of its Abu Dhabi-Chengdu service from five-flights-a-week to daily, effective March 30, 2014. The airline said that it launched its Chengdu service on December 15, 2011, offering the first and only direct airline connection between the UAE and China’s Sichuan province. It is the third city to be served by Etihad Airways in China, with daily flights also operated to the capital, Beijing, and the country’s largest city by population, Shanghai. Passenger volumes on the Chengdu route increased by 25 per cent last year compared to 2012 levels, while cargo and mail volumes were 19 per cent higher.
