Exciting Etihad Airways News

Etihad Airways has launched flights towards Boston with its 787 Dreamliner and therefore boosted service to the United States. This is exciting news for the airline.

Etihad Airways is celebrating its service launch in Boston. The first flight touched down on Sunday, March 31, 2024, local time.

A Boeing 787-9 operated the flight, which was given the flight number EY147; this aircraft features 28 seats in Business class and 262 in Economy with the latest state-of-the-art entertainment systems and comfort present.

According to Etihad Airways, service commencement is an important part of its overall mission to strengthen ties between the United Arab Emirates and the United States.

Additionally, service launching to Boston is seen as strengthening an already solid network towards the country that has continued to develop through the years.

We are thrilled to inaugurate flights to Boston, further extending our reach across the United States and enhancing connectivity for travellers. This new route not only brings the allure of Abu Dhabi and Dubai to the American Northeast but also signifies our commitment to delivering exceptional travel experiences and fostering global connections.

Etihad’s Chief Executive Officer Antonoaldo Neves.

Ultimately, Boston joined New York, Chicago, and Washington as the fourth destination in the U.S. Previously, Etihad Airways flew to more locations; however, under its restructuring, this network was adjusted significantly.

Service will depart Abu Dhabi at 0310 and arrive in Boston at 0850. Flights will depart Abu Dhabi on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday with the 787-9 utilised. Meanwhile, departure from Boston will occur at 1600, and an arrival at 1205 will be made back into Abu Dhabi the following day.

A partnership with JetBlue is also being highlighted, as passengers aboard Etihad Airways flights into Boston will be able to continue onward to numerous cities across North America.

Additionally, the airline mentions that flights to Toronto in Canada extend its footprint in the United States and North America. Greater convenience is highlighted alongside accessibility for customers.
