Etihad Airways has increased its flights to the northern city of Lahore in Pakistan, from seven to eleven per week.

With the addition of the new services, Etihad Airways will now offer 27 weekly flights from four destinations in Pakistan which, along with Lahore, include Karachi, Islamabad and Peshawar.

The additional services will be operated by Airbus A320 aircraft fitted with 16 Pearl Business Class seats and will increase capacity by 21% on the route.

These services also improve the number of connections over the airline’s Abu Dhabi hub to more than 500 connections a week (representing an increase of 20%) to a number of key destinations in the GCC and Europe.

Kevin Knight, Etihad Airways’ Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said, “The addition of the new flights will further strengthen commercial and cultural ties between Pakistan and the UAE and will lead to continued strong growth in traffic flows between Lahore, Abu Dhabi and beyond to many key destinations across our global network.”

Since the start of flights to Lahore in 2006, Etihad Airways has carried more than one million passengers on the route.
