Etihad Airways is preparing to launch seasonal summer flights from Abu Dhabi to the Egyptian city of Alexandria, one of oldest continuously-inhabited locations in the world.
Home to the Great Library of Alexandria and one of the ancient world wonders, the Pharos Lighthouse, the flights will launch on July 2 and run until August 31.
The Airbus A320 flights will depart Abu Dhabi every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
With the addition of these seasonal services, Etihad will operate a total of 32 flights per week to Egypt - 28 flights to Cairo and four to Alexandria.
Robin Kamark, chief commercial officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “Alexandria is one of the most popular holiday destinations for UAE residents, and our new seasonal flights are timed to provide access for tourists during the peak summer period. They will also be a convenient option for many of the Egyptian nationals living in the UAE and planning to return home during the holiday season.”For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
