The inauguration ceremony took place at the E boarding area for international flights at Rome’s Leonardo Da Vinci International Airport Fiumicino.
Flight EY 85 was greeted with a welcoming cake cutting ceremony by representatives of Etihad Airways and AdR upon arrival to Rome Fiumicino.
Federico Scriboni, head, airline traffic development, AdR, commented, “This reinforces the presence of the airline in Rome, highlighting the strategic role played by the Roman market, and caters to the demand for destinations not currently served directly from Rome, such as Australia, which are now accessible seamlessly via Abu Dhabi. Leonardo da Vinci is becoming an increasingly popular gateway, renowned for its excellent services, and boasting a large number of the world’s major international airlines.”
Flights on the Abu Dhabi – Rome Fiumicino route will be operated by a Boeing B777-300ER aircraft, equipped with 28 business class and 384 economy class seats and Airbus A330-200 aircraft, featuring 22 business class and 240 economy class seats.
