Etihad adds Dallas to network


Etihad Airways will launch direct flights to Dallas Fort Worth, Texas, in 2014, the United Arab Emirates’ national airline’s fifth destination in the United States. The addition of the new ultra-long haul three flights a week service, which will start on Dec. 3, 2014, follows Etihad’s pledge to continue to expand its US flight network to cater for growing demand from business and leisure travellers. Dallas is also the largest and most important hub for American Airlines, Etihad Airways’ US codeshare partner, and the new service will strengthen Etihad Airways’ reach and depth across the US, attracting air travellers from the Middle East region and Indian Subcontinent.
