Etihad to resume some flights to New York, Washington from Sunday

Etihad Airways
expects some flights to and from New York and Washington D.C. to resume from
Sunday, following disruptions caused by the winter snowstorm wreaking havoc in
the US.

However, the
schedule remains severely disrupted due to adverse weather conditions, the
airline said in a statement.

It said:
“Etihad Airways has been forced to cancel the following flights [on January 24]

“The following

“Etihad Airways airport teams are assisting
guests affected by the cancellation of these flights,” the statement added.

The airline
announced on Friday

that its flights in and out of the Northeastern Seaboard of the US were subject
to major delays and cancellations due to winter storm Jonas.

However, on
Saturday night weather conditions were forecast to improve at both New York’s
JFK and Washington Dulles airports and state news agency WAM said Etihad
expects its schedule to return to normal from Sunday.

The airline has pledged to help customers affected by flight cancellations on Friday and Saturday with their new travel arrangements.
