Sana’a latest destination for Etihad Airways

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), will launch direct flights to Sana’a, Yemen’s political and commercial capital on September 1, 2013.
Sana’a will be the airline’s eighth destination on the Arabian Peninsula beyond Abu Dhabi, joining Bahrain, Dammam, Doha, Jeddah, Kuwait, Muscat and Riyadh. Flights to Sana’a will operate four times a week.
“The launch of direct services to Sana’a is consistent with our strategy of adding depth and scale to our network and targeting areas of growth in emerging markets,” says James Hogan, Etihad Airways President and Chief Executive Officer. “The ancestral, cultural and business ties between the two countries are significant, and we believe the new service will further facilitate Yemen’s economic development in the months and years ahead.”
The route will be operated by a two-class Airbus A320 aircraft with 16 seats in Pearl Business Class and 120 seats in Coral Economy Class.
