Three seasonal services took off on the morning of June 15, connecting Abu Dhabi to Nice on the French Côte d’Azur, the historic city of Heraklion on the Greek island of Crete, and Malaga in Spain. All three services are set to be operated on a twice-per-week basis. These will be complemented by additional routes to the islands of Santorini in Greece and Zanzibar in Tanzania, both operating three times weekly. These seasonal routes will grow the carrier’s network to over 70 destinations. “Summer adventurers have plenty to discover with Etihad Airways this year,” said Martin Drew, senior vice president global sales. “From the stunning beaches of the Costa del Sol to the picture-perfect French Riviera, Etihad’s summer network offers even more opportunities to get away and experience the wonder of travel in 2022.” Guests on the inaugural flights are being presented with an exclusive Etihad wellbeing kit to kickstart their summer holiday.
