Enhanced Capacity for Etihad's Abu Dhabi-Dublin Route

Tickets seekers contemplating a travel from Europe to UAE will soon have more options, thanks to Etihad Airways’ announcement of an increase of capacity from Abu Dhabi to Dublin starting 2 July 2013.

The flag carrier of UAE operates 10 flights per week on the route, deploying A330-200 aircraft. From 2 July 2013, it is going to run six “EY045” flights every week deploying Boeing 777-300ER while the remaining four services will operate with the existing aircraft. 777-300ER is configured to offer tickets for 412 seats including 28 in Pearl Business Class and 384 in relatively cheap Coral Economy Class.

The move will increase the seating capacity by 34 percent and the enhanced seating space will contribute to additional 900 seats weekly for flyers seeking tickets between Abu Dhabi and Dublin.

The carrier began its operations to Ireland in 2007 with four flights every week. It enhanced it to six and then to a daily service in 2008. In March 2010, the frequency was increased to the current service of 10 weekly flights from UAE’s capital.

The increase in seats will directly benefit the Irish and other European travellers who seek tickets to fly from UAE.  In addition, it is going to allow more Europeans to opt for a carrier that has a wide global network that includes some of the most popular onward destinations like Australia, Thailand and India.
