Etihad Airways flights to Dublin

Etihad Airways will begin non-stop flights in August between Abu Dhabi and the Irish capital of Dublin.  Flying a three-class Airbus A330-200 aircraft, the new four times a week service will link Ireland with one-stop connections to Sydney in Australia and major cities in Asia, including Bangkok and Manila.

Bertie Ahern, the Prime Minister of Ireland, said: "Etihad is to be complimented for taking this opportunity and I have no doubts that its confidence will be rewarded.  This new route will mark a further deepening of our relations with the Gulf region and Asia." 

 James Hogan, Etihad Airways' Chief Executive, said: "This new air link between the capital cities of Ireland and the UAE brings together two thriving economies.  Plus, Abu Dhabi, as the capital city of the UAE, also opens up the country's seven emirates, including Dubai." 

 Declan Collier, Chief Executive, Dublin Airport Authority, said: "We're delighted to welcome and support this new service following many months of detailed discussions between Etihad and the airport. The launch of this high quality service underpins Dublin airport's commitment to developing new long-haul routes into and out of Ireland for business and leisure travellers."

 Starting on 3 August, Etihad's flight EY045 will operate Mondays and Fridays, departing Abu Dhabi at 02.05hrs, arriving at Dublin at 07.35hrs. The flight returns the same day, with EY042 departing Dublin at 10.15hrs, arriving Abu Dhabi at 20.35hrs.  

The second flight, EY041, will operate Saturdays and Tuesdays, departing Abu Dhabi at 13.55hrs and arriving in Dublin at 19.25hrs. The return flight, EY408, departs Dublin at 21.10hrs, arriving Abu Dhabi at 07.30hrs the following day.  All times are local.
