Etihad Airways announces new flights from Abu Dhabi to Spain


Abu Dhabi is an international travel hub and that makes going on holiday even more exciting.

Every day, residents travel off to destinations near and far around the world and we’re a little bit jealous actually.

Now Etihad airways has added another city to its list of destinations, as seasonal flights between Abu Dhabi and Malaga, Spain, have been announced.

Starting from June 26, 2020 and running until September 13, you will be able to travel to Andalucía from the UAE capital, via a short stop off in Morocco’s capital, Rabat.

Malaga will be Etihad’s third destination in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona and is the birth place of world-famous artist Pablo Picasso.

“Malaga has been on our wish-list for some time and we are tremendously pleased to announce summer season services to the Costa del Sol, a region which for decades has been popular with travellers from across the United Arab Emirates,” said Robin Kamark, CCO, Etihad Aviation Group.

“This will be the only service between the UAE and the main gateway to Andalucía.

“The new flights will be operated by our next-generation 787 Dreamliners, ensuring we provide the best product and service to our customers heading on business or on holiday.”

Etihad was recently named the World’s Leading Airline and announced plans for eco-friendly travel from Abu Dhabi starting in 2020.

Abu Dhabi’s airline also recently announced a new loyalty programme for travellers with new rewards.
