Etihad Raising Colombo To Double Daily Flights

New service to provide more flexibility and better connectivity for passengers

Etihad Airways will increase its Abu Dhabi-Colombo services to a double daily schedule from February 16.

An A320 aircraft fitted with 16 Pearl Business Class seats and 120 Coral Economy Class seats will operate the route.

Kevin Knight, Etihad Airways’ chief strategy and planning officer, said the extra flight will offer passengers more convenient travel options and improved connections to many destinations across its network.

The Colombo service was relaunched in January 2010.
