Etihad Airways has announced the introduction of a new scheduled service linking Abu Dhabi, capital of the UAE, and Barcelona, Spain, effective 28 November 2018. The route will initially be operated five times a week by Airbus A330-200 before becoming a daily operation from 31 March 2019.
Barcelona will become the second city in Spain served by Etihad Airways, complementing the airline’s existing daily service to the capital Madrid. The new link will provide business and leisure travellers with convenient timings to travel between Abu Dhabi and Barcelona, also providing seamless onward connections through Abu Dhabi to major cities in the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia, China, Japan, Korea and Australia.
Etihad Cargo customers will benefit from yet another direct link to mainland Europe directly from our Abu Dhabi hub through the bellyhold of our passenger aircraft.
