What’s On at Etihad

Only two weeks ago, the UAE’s national carrier began operating its mighty A380s to New York’s JFK International from Zayed International Airport, and also announced plans to begin flying to Paris Charles-de-Gaulle beginning November 1. This followed  flight route launches to Boston, and also the addition of daily flights to two southern Indian cities, Kozhikode (CCJ) and Thiruvananthapuram (TRV).

Following the launch of the capital’s state-of-the-art Zayed International Airport, Etihad also unveiled their stunning new lounges at Terminal A before becoming the title sponsor of the Chennai Super Kings, the most successful team in the history of league cricket after a groundbreaking signing in February.

Plenty of excitement…
