Abu Dhabi airline says daily flight from Al Ain to Jeddah will operate during last 10 days of holy month
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, will again operate a daily scheduled flight between the emirate of Abu Dhabi’s second largest city, Al Ain, and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia during the last ten days of Ramadan.
The airline said it will operate the flights from May 14-23 to meet increased demand during the busy religious travel period.
The flights, which will be operated by a two-class Airbus A320, have been timed to offer customers in Al Ain with convenient departures in both directions, Etihad Airways said in a statement.
The carrier added that the service, first launched last year, demonstrates its commitment to the culturally and strategically important ‘Oasis City’, which is home to a large proportion of the airline’s national customer base, and its staff employed at Etihad Aviation Training’s pilot training facility, and its UAE Contact Centre.
