Etihad Airways to commence Abu Dhabi-Baku service in Mar-2018

    Etihad Airways announced (11-Oct-2017) plans to commence three times weekly Abu DhabiBaku service on 02-Mar-2018, in response to “strong and growing demand for flights between the United Arab Emirates and Azerbaijan“. The airline will operate the service with A320 equipment configured with 16 business class and 120 economy class seats. The carrier noted the visa waiver programme for UAE nationals introduced in Azerbaijan in Nov-2015 and expanded to other GCC nations in early 2016 “prompted a surge in travel from across the GCC”.
