Etihad Airways has announced the launch of non-stop daily flights to Washington, D.C., the airline’s fourth destination in North America, from March 31, subject to regulatory approvals. The Washington region is home to America’s second largest market flying to the Middle East, after New York. Etihad’s new service will link D.C. with Abu Dhabi, a vibrant and growing hub for business, culture and tourism. The direct flights will be operated by a three-class A340-500 aircraft. Each flight will offer 12 Diamond First class, 28 Pearl Business class and 200 Coral Economy seats, for a total 3,360 seats per week. (
