Etihad Airways Boosts Flights to New York This Winter

Etihad Airways has announced that it will boost services to New York. Starting November 15, the airline will add four weekly flights on the Abu Dhabi-New York route, providing a total of 11 weekly nonstop services to John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK).

A Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will be deployed for the new flights, while existing daily services will continue on the airline’s new Airbus A350 aircraft, which has been deployed on the New York route since June. The increase in frequency will offer passengers more choice and flexibility between Abu Dhabi and New York, and is perfectly timed to commence ahead of the Formula One Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix scheduled to be held on Yas Island from November 17-20, 2022.

Travelers will also benefit from improved access between New York and Etihad’s global network of 70 destinations, particularly in the Middle East, India and Southeast Asia, besides connections beyond New York, to and from 46 destinations throughout the Americas, with Etihad’s codeshare partner JetBlue.

Etihad passengers traveling to the U.S. can avail of the U.S. pre-clearance facility—the only United States Customs and Border Protection facility in the Middle East. This allows passengers bound for the United States to process all immigration, customs and agriculture inspections in Abu Dhabi before they board their flight, avoiding immigration and queues on arrival in the U.S.

With 11 weekly services to New York-JFK, and daily services to Chicago and Washington, Etihad will offer a total of 25 weekly flights this winter between Abu Dhabi and the U.S., and over 50 percent more premium seats than in winter 2021.
