Etihad to Deploy Extra A380 to Sydney

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of its first Australian itinerary Abu Dhabi – Sydney, Etihad Airways has announced that all 14 weekly routes will enjoy its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft as of October 29.

The current daily A380 flight to the destination will be joined by a second daily superjumbo service, featuring the carrier’s exclusive three-room suite, The Residence.

With the deployment of the 496-seat double decker, Sydney will join London and New York as the airline’s all-A380 itineraries.

Peter Baumgartner, CEO, Etihad Airways, said, “Sydney is one of our busiest and best performing long-haul routes where we have experienced increased demand […]. The upgrade of this service will help fulfill growing demand, benefiting travellers to and from Abu Dhabi, and across Etihad Airways’ global network.”
