Etihad Airways will increase its Abu Dhabi-Munich services from seven flights per week to a double daily schedule from February 1 2014.

Munich was Etihad Airways’ first destination in Germany, and a daily flight linking the Bavarian capital with Etihad Airways’ Abu Dhabi hub commenced in June 2004.

Since then, the airline said it has carried over one million passengers between the two cities.

James Hogan, president and CEO of Etihad Airways, said:  “Munich, Germany’s third biggest city, has been one of our most successful European destinations because it retains very strong volumes of business and leisure passengersthroughout the year.

“This doubling of capacity is about serving the growing bi-directional demand, adding depth and scale to our German operations, and facilitating better connections with equity partner airberlin.

“The new schedule means that Etihad Airways and airberlin will together offer a combined 49 weekly services from four cities in Germany – Munich, Frankfurt, Berlin and Dusseldorf – to Abu Dhabi.”

Etihad Airways will operate the updated schedule using a three-class Airbus A330-300 aircraft, configured with 8 seats in Diamond First Class, 32 in Pearl Business Class and 191 in Coral Economy Class.
