Premium Airline Partner Etihad Airways
Etihad Airways is the national airline of the United Arab Emirates and was founded in 2003. The airline’s home base and hub are in Abu Dhabi, which is the capital of the emirate of the same name and also the capital of the United Arab Emirates as a whole.
The airline operates more than 1,000 flights a week to destinations all over the world. By virtue of its unprecedented high quality standards, Etihad Airways has established itself as a leading global airline and has already been awarded the title "World's Leading Airline*" three years in succession. The luxurious facilities on the aircraft, the varied entertainment programmes and the outstanding standard of the catering on board meet the highest quality requirements and afford passengers a memorable flying experience.
Etihad Airways has been the strategic partner of airberlin since the end of 2011. The combined route network of Etihad Airways and airberlin covers 227 destinations in 83 countries. The new connection to Abu Dhabi is proving to be a great advantage. There are a total of 42 connections available every week, provided by direct daily flights from Frankfurt, Berlin, Munich and Dusseldorf. The new hub in Abu Dhabi opens up a highly sought-after gateway to the Arab countries, Asia and Australia for airberlin customers, and airberlin, on the other hand, provides the gateway to America for Etihad customers.
