Etihad Regional has launched direct daily flights between Zurich, Switzerland and Leipzig/Halle, Germany.

A new-liveried 50-seat Saab 2000 aircraft is being used on the route.

This is Etihad Regionals second route launch from Switzerland to Germany, following the commencement of Geneva-Stuttgart operations in February.

The airline also operates flights from Leipzig to Amsterdam and Paris.

Maurizio Merlo, Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Regional said, It is a great honour for us to link these two important European cities, and even more so with a daily connection. Our service will no doubt enhance the already strong commercial and leisure ties between Switzerland and Germany, while at the same time extending Etihad Regionals geographic presence in the German market. It is good news for business and leisure travellers alike, as it is for the cities of Leipzig and Zurich.

Peter Baumgartner, Vice Chairman designate of Etihad Regional added, Importantly, the new service demonstrates Etihad Regionals strategy to continue building a strong regional network linking European cities and towns, which also connect to the global network of our partners, including Etihad Airways and airberlin. For Etihad Regional, as for the Etihad brand as a whole, providing a remarkable guest experience is one of the core elements of our proposition. What our guests expect is that we put them first. Put them first with our product, our service and our network, and thats what we are doing.

Beyond linking Leipzig and Zurich, the new flights will also offer travellers a great opportunity to connect onto Etihad Airways upcoming services from Zurich to Abu Dhabi.
