Etihad Airways Extends Its Wings to Antalya and Jaipur with New Routes

Etihad Airways Launches 8 New Destinations this month

Etihad Airways, the official airline of the United Arab Emirates, has made major schedule adjustments for the summer, marking the next major expansion of its global network.

To strengthen Abu Dhabi’s status as a worldwide connection and improve travel options, this strategic development entails adding new flights and increasing frequencies to existing routes. The airline plans to increase its reach by beginning service to two brand-new, highly desirable locations: Etihad is set to commence three weekly seasonal flights between Abu Dhabi and Antalya (AYT), Turkey on June 15. Beginning on June 16, there will be four weekly flights to Jaipur (JAI), India.

Etihad is increasing the frequency of its flights to several important locations starting on June 15. There will be three more weekly flights to Thiruvananthapuram and 14 to Amman, respectively. Three more flights to Cairo for a total of 24, an increase to 17 in Karachi, and 20 weekly flights to Colombo are among the additional services.

The company’s most recent expansion increases its coverage from 65 to 75 locations, greatly improving global connectivity, and adds to the overall 33% rise in weekly flights operated by Etihad, which increased from 635 last summer to 847 in 2024. Notably, Jaipur brings Etihad’s total count of Indian gates to 11. The development demonstrates Etihad’s dedication to the Indian market and fortifies the existing cultural and commercial links between India and the United Arab Emirates.

Passengers will also get to enjoy the high-end facilities and customer-focused services offered at the recently opened Terminal A at Zayed International Airport Abu Dhabi.

Sneak Peek Inside the Qatar Airways' Qsuite Next Gen at Farnborough Airshow

As the Farnborough International Airshow 2024 unfolds, one of the most anticipated highlights has arrived: Qatar Airways’ unveiling of its Innovative Qsuite Next Gen.

This preview offers a tantalizing glimpse into the future of luxury travel, showcasing the next evolution of Qatar Airways’ renowned Qsuite. Known for setting the standard in premium cabin experiences, the new Qsuite promises to redefine business class comfort with cutting-edge design and technology.

Building on the success of its pioneering Qsuite, which redefined business class with its door-equipped suites, Qatar Airways’ new generation of Qsuite is poised to elevate the standard even further.

A standout feature of the Qsuite Next Gen is its redesigned Quad Suite, which is equipped with movable 4K OLED Panasonic Astrova IFE screens—a world-first for any airline. These state-of-the-art screens can be repositioned to the side, creating the largest social and productivity space in the sky.

This setup allows for up to four passengers to enjoy a spacious and flexible environment in the Quad Suite, while the Companion Suite accommodates up to two passengers.

The Qsuite Next Gen will be introduced on Qatar Airways’ Boeing B777-9 aircraft starting in 2025. This new suite configuration not only includes innovative window dual suites but also features a unique combination of quad, duo, and companion suites, each designed with the latest technologies for increased passenger convenience and connectivity.

Customization options are abundant, with enhanced ambient lighting, privacy controls, and upgraded touchscreen Passenger Control Units that offer a more personalized experience.

One notable change in the Qsuite Next Gen is the integration of the TV screens into the suite’s barrier system. Instead of traditional dividers that need to be lowered, these screens serve as part of the barrier and can be folded away when not in use.

However, Qatar Airways has confirmed that these advanced seats will not be retrofitted onto older aircraft. As Qatar Airways continues to evolve its fleet, the airline is focusing on reducing the number of non-Qatar-branded leased aircraft and phasing out the oldest models.
