Abu Dhabi, July 23 (IANS/WAM) The UAE’s national carrier Etihad Airways will launch flights to the German city of Dusseldorf from Dec 16, making it its 71st destination, the airline announced Saturday.

It will operate four non-stop and return flights weekly between Dusseldorf, the capital of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, and Abu Dhabi. The service will be upgraded to daily service by mid-April 2012.

The route will be served by an Airbus A330-300 series aircraft, in a three-class configuration.

The schedule has been designed to provide convenient departure and arrival times and seamless onward connections to Etihad’s extensive network across almost 40 markets.

This includes destinations in the Middle East, Asia, Australia, the Indian subcontinent, and two of the airline’s newest routes, the Maldives and the Seychelles.
