Etihad Airways is to provide an additional 24 flights during the holy month of Ramadan between Abu Dhabi and Jeddah and add special flights to Medina Al Munawara.

The extra services will operate until 2 October and build on the 28 return flights Etihad operates every week to its Saudi destinations of Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam.

The flight uplift also opens a range of short and long-haul connections for air travellers flying via Etihadís Abu Dhabi home base.

James Hogan, Etihad Airwaysí chief executive, said, ďThe additional flights from Abu Dhabi to Jeddah will cater for the great demand from Umra travellers during the holy month of Ramadan and will enhance significantly the long-haul travel options to the Muslim communities throughout our network with a short transfer time in Abu Dhabi on many routes.Ē

Etihad launched its first service from Abu Dhabi to Riyadh in December 2004. It began operating in the same month to Dammam and in May 2006 it started flights to Jeddah.

Etihadís extra flights to Jeddah and Medina will be operated by two cabin Airbus A330-200.
