New York, United States, is now served by more flights from Etihad Airways. With the addition of four weekly flights from 15th November, Etihad will offer 11 weekly nonstop services from Abu Dhabi to John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners will be used for the new flights, while Etihad’s Airbus A350s, which have been deployed on the New York route since June, will continue to operate daily flights. Compared to previous-generation twin aisle aircraft, these aircraft burn considerably less fuel and emit significantly less CO2.
Passengers traveling to the US will be able to use Etihad’s US pre-clearance facility, the only one in the Middle East provided by US Customs and Border Protection. By doing so, passengers bound for the United States can complete all immigration, customs and agriculture inspections before boarding their flights, avoiding immigration and queues on arrival. In addition to serving New York-JFK 11 times a week and Chicago and Washington every day, Etihad will offer over 50% more premium seats this winter than in winter 2021.
