Etihad introduces second Airbus A380 to London-Abu Dhabi route

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has introduced its second Airbus A380 on its Abu Dhabi to London Heathrow route.

Two of the airline’s three daily flights to London will now be operated by the A380. Etihad Airways has a further eight A380s on order.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways chief commercial officer, said: "Adding our second A380 on the Abu Dhabi to London Heathrow route will give our guests more opportunities to experience Etihad Airways’ revolutionary new cabins, including The Residence by Etihad and First Apartments. By August of 2015, all three daily flights on this flagship route will be operated by the A380, offering our guests unparalleled luxury and superior in-flight technology.

In 2014, Etihad Airways carried 533,615 guests to and from London Heathrow. The introduction of the A380 between Abu Dhabi and London will allow the airline to further boost its passenger numbers on the route. The A380 has full mobile and wi-fi service, with USB and power points at every seat.
