Etihad Airways has announced it’ll boost its Abu Dhabi to Kuala Lumpur service from 15 January 2024.

14 weekly flights will now be available from Etihad’s hub towards the Malaysian capital. This was all made possible thanks to the announcement of a second daily flight.

Etihad Airways will operate the new service with a Boeing 787-9, which also complements the existing 787-9 operated service.

With our convenient departures from Abu Dhabi, our second Kuala Lumpur flights will optimise timings for UAE residents wishing to have a break in Malaysia. Moreover, the new daytime and night-time flights from Kuala Lumpur allow travellers reaching Abu Dhabi more options to explore what the city has to offer in terms of business and pleasure. It further reaffirms our commitment to bringing more guests to enjoy Abu Dhabi, as well as connecting to our growing global network.

Arik De, Chief Revenue Officer at Etihad Airways.

Etihad Airways offers customers close to 425,000 seats annually between the two vibrant cities by operating two daily flights. This also equates to a 75% increase in year-on-year capacity.

Etihad notes that through the second daily service, there’ll be more connectivity towards Southeast Asia from Abu Dhabi, with countless weekly flights into other popular cities such as Phuket, Singapore, Jakarta, etc.
