Etihad to launch of daily flight to Dar es Salaam

Etihad Airways will expand its African route network with the launch of a daily service to Dar es Salaam.

Flights between Abu Dhabi and Dar es Salaam, which will commence on December 1, 2015, will be operated using Airbus A320 aircraft with 16 Business Class and 120 Economy Class seats.

The daily schedule will offer two-way connectivity over Etihad Airways’ hub in Abu Dhabi, with convenient onward connections to 45 popular destinations across the Middle East, Europe, the Indian Subcontinent, North and Southeast Asia, and Australasia.

In particular, it is anticipated that the demand for the new route will be boosted by strong flows of business and leisure travellers, as well as cargo volumes between the East Africa region and the Indian subcontinent and China.
