ETIHAD AIRWAYS, the Abu Dhabi-based national airline of the UAE, will introduce its first all-Economy Class aircraft into its fleet in October. Two Airbus A320s will be configured to carry 162 Y Class passengers, an increase of 42 from the current capacity. These aircraft will operate on short haul destinations, with a low demand for premium traffic. The initial routes will be to Alexandria, Calicut, Colombo, Damascus, Doha and Thiruvananthapuram. Plans are in place to expand the all-economy fleet to ten A320 aircraft enabling the airline to launch new short haul routes with a preponderance of economy traffic. Certain current destinations might also be affected. Customers travelling on the new all-economy aircraft will receive the same service and product that is featured on the current narrow body fleet, including seat back in-flight entertainment screens and hot and cold meals and beverages. www.etihadairways.com
