        Etihad Airways to add a second daily flight between Abu Dhabi and New York City

        More choice for Abu Dhabi business, government, expatriate and leisure travellers

        New one-stop connections to/from more than 30 destinations, via Abu Dhabi hub

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, will double its flights between Abu Dhabi and New York City, introducing a second daily service from March 1, 2014.

Flight EY103 will depart Abu Dhabi International Airport at 1.45am, arriving at New York’s John F Kennedy Airport (JFK) at 7.45am the same day, while the return flight, EY102, will leave JFK at 11.35am, arriving in Abu Dhabi at 9.20am the next day.

The new flights will complement the airline’s current daily 10.30am departure to New York, providing a choice of flights for Abu Dhabi’s business, government, expatriate and leisure travellers, while passengers travelling from New York to Abu Dhabi and beyond will have the option of a late morning flight as well as the current 9.40pm departure.

Initially, the new flights will be operated by Etihad Airways using two three-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft leased from its strategic partner, India’s Jet Airways. From May 1, 2014, Jet Airways will operate these flights.

The second New York service will increase substantially the connections available via the Abu Dhabi Airport hub, with the schedule designed to link in both directions with Etihad Airways and partner airline flights between Abu Dhabi and more than 30 destinations in India, the Middle East, Central and South East Asia, Africa and island nations in the Indian Ocean region.

Beyond New York, guests also will be able to connect in both directions with destinations throughout the US, and in Canada and Mexico.
“New York City is one of the most popular destinations in our network – not only for guests flying from Abu Dhabi but also for business, leisure and family travellers from a wide range of connecting destinations,” said James Hogan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways.

“These services will provide greater access to New York City for travellers from Abu Dhabi and further evidence of the importance of Abu Dhabi as a global air transport hub,” Mr Hogan said.

“The flights also will open fresh opportunities for tourism to the UAE, and beyond to destinations throughout the Middle East, the Indian sub-continent, Asia, Africa, and the island nations of the Indian Ocean.”

In addition to the increased frequency to New York, Etihad Airways has announced plans to commence services to two new US destinations – Los Angeles daily from June 2014 and Dallas-Fort Worth three times a week from December 2014.

The airline also flies daily between Abu Dhabi and both Washington D.C. and Chicago.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
