Etihad Airways is upgrading its Lagos service to daily.

The airline initially launched its service between Lagos, West Africa’s most populous city, and Abu Dhabi on 1 July 2012, with six flights a week enhancing the links between Nigeria, Africa’s third largest economy, and the United Arab Emirates.

The new daily service will be introduced on 31 March 2013, coinciding with the start of the airline’s new summer schedule, and will improve connections between Nigeria and the United Arab Emirates, and beyond to key destinations across the airline’s network in Saudi Arabia, the Middle East, India, Malaysia and China.

“We have received a very positive response from the Nigerian market since launching our service six months ago,” Maurice Phohleli, Etihad Airways’ General Manager, Nigeria and West Africa. “Our passenger loads are strong and we are confident that this route will continue to support the growing flow of business and leisure travellers who fly from Nigeria to the United Arab Emirates, and onwards over the airline’s hub in Abu Dhabi to key commercial and tourism destinations in the GCC, North and Southeast Asia and markets in the Indian Subcontinent.”

The service, comprising a mix of morning and evening departures, is operated by an Airbus A330-200 aircraft configured to carry 22 Pearl Business class and 240 Coral Economy class passengers.
