If you’re heading back to the UK for Christmas from Abu Dhabi this year, you’ll have an additional flight to choose from as Etihad is set to add an additional flight to London from October.

The fourth daily flight from Abu Dhabi to London Heathrow will operate year-round from October 27, 2019.

Flight EY25 will depart Abu Dhabi in the morning at 10.45am and arrive in London at 2.50pm. The return flight will leave London Heathrow at 9.05pm, arriving in Abu Dhabi the next morning at 8.05am.

According to the statement from Etihad, the new service “demonstrates our commitment to the crucially important UK market, and ensures we provide our customers with all the benefits of a next-generation fleet across all 42 weekly departures to and from the United Kingdom.”
