Abu Dhabi’s Etihad to fly daily to Lagos

The airline previously upped capacity to Lagos in December

Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways has announced it will begin flying daily to Lagos later this year after introducing two additional weekly flights.

The new Tuesday and Thursday services will begin on May 1 and be operated by a two-class Airbus A330 with 22 business and 240 economy class seats.

“The airline is committed to offering attractive schedules and choice to our guests travelling between Lagos and the UAE capital as well as convenient connections to destinations including the GCC, India and Asia,” said Etihad executive vice president for commercial Mohammad Al Bulooki.

Etihad first launched its Abu Dhabi-Lagos service in July 2012 and has carried nearly 600,000 passengers between the two cities to date.

The new flight schedule will see EY673 leave Abu Dhabi International at 2:30am and arrive in Lagos at 7:30am.

Return flight EY674 will depart at 9:00am and arrive in Abu Dhabi at 7:50pm.

The airline previously upped capacity to Lagos in December when it added Saturday flights to its four a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
