Etihad Boeing 787 upgrades

Daily scheduled services between Abu Dhabi and Kuala Lumpur from 20 December and Brussels from 3 January are being upgraded by Etihad Airways with the introduction of the Boeing B787-9 to the routes.

The new two-class Dreamliner service, with 299 seats, features Etihad’s next-generation cabins in both Business Class and Economy Class cabins. Business Class has 28 “Business Studios”, while Economy offers 271 “Economy Smart” seats.

Group chief commercial officer Robin Kamark said: “Kuala Lumpur and Brussels are two very important destinations on the Etihad network, popular with both business and leisure customers.

“We are delighted to be introducing the Dreamliner on these routes. Our passengers can expect the quietest cabins and our latest in-flight products and technology, on one of the world’s most technologically advanced and fuel-efficient aircraft."

Kamark added passengers flying between Abu Dhabi and the two cities would continue to benefit from convenient departure and arrival times at both ends, and those transiting Abu Dhabi having seamless connections to Etihad’s global network.

Etihad has a fleet of 21 B787-9s offering award-winning cabin designs and products, complemented by an acclaimed service and hospitality offering.

Flights include food and beverage managers in Business Class and a “flying nanny” in Economy Class for families with young children.
