New Delhi, Jan 30, 2015:
Gulf carrier Etihad on Tuesday said it has revised its flight timings for the North American destinations from its Abu Dhabi hub, after year-on-year increase in demand for travel between the Indian subcontinent and the North America.

The move will boost connectivity with the subcontinent including India.

The revised flight schedule, to be effective from March 29 will also provide new connections from Dhaka, Kathmandu, and Kolkata to Chicago, New York, and Toronto via Abu Dhabi, a release her said.

The schedule changes for Chicago and Toronto have been made in conjunction with the American Airlines and Air Canada in North America, and Jet Airways in India, who all are air Etihad partners in these regions, it said.

"The demand for travel between the Indian subcontinent and North America continues to grow year-on-year and we're delighted to change our schedule in order to support this requirement and to increase the travel options for our guests,"Etihad Airways chief strategy and planning officer Kevin Knight said.

Etihad holds 24 per cent stake in Naresh Goyal's private airline Jet Airways.

The partner airlines will implement new codeshare flights as well as re-accommodate guests who are affected by the new schedule, Etihad said.

The new schedule will create a more even balance of Etihad Airways' flights to North America and will result in fewer passengers transiting through the hub at peak periods, he said.

The revised flight timings will provide convenient schedule options for the UAE passengers travelling to North America, enhance overall connectivity for flights to and from the Indian subcontinent and establish new connections to key markets such as Dhaka, Kathmandu, and Kolkata, the airline said.

Besides, the new times also all connect with airline's other destinations in the region such as Colombo, Delhi, Karachi, Lahore, and Mumbai, the release said.CCI Newswire
