Beginning on October 1, 2023, Etihad Airways will operate flights to Osaka five times per week, adding one of the most culturally vibrant cities in the world to the airline’s already broad network.
The launch of this route will strengthen the expanding business and travel relations between the two nations and enhance Etihad’s current Tokyo service by opening up yet another fascinating entry point to the Land of the Rising Sun.
The city of Osaka, also referred to as the “Kitchen of Japan,” has a renowned culinary scene, with Michelin-starred establishments and unique restaurants serving specialties like takoyaki (octopus balls), okonomiyaki (savoury pancakes), and sushi.
Beyond its culinary delights, Osaka offers visitors the chance to experience the samurai era in a step back in time at Osaka Castle, explore the energetic Dontonbori district with its neon-lit streets and countless entertainment options, or indulge in retail therapy in one of the numerous shopping areas dotted throughout the city.
On the new route, Etihad will fly a cutting-edge Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, giving passengers a taste of the airline’s renowned service, catering, and onboard entertainment.
