The change in the flight schedule, with new daily departure options from Abu Dhabi to Johannesburg and vice versa, will provide travellers in either direction with improved opportunities to connect onwards to regional networks across Africa, and internationally beyond the airline’s hub in Abu Dhabi.
Xenia Adamou, Etihad Airways’ General Manager, South Africa, said: “The new schedule means that we are now able to provide daily departures, ensuring that our business and leisure travellers benefit from greater connectivity and flexibility when flying between South Africa and the UAE.”
The new schedule will also provide passengers with a significant increase in weekly connections between Johannesburg and a number of key Asian business and leisure destinations on the airline’s fast growing global network, including Chengdu (China), Singapore and Phuket (Thailand).
The new Johannesburg schedule, effective Sunday, 26th October 2014 will be as follows:
