Etihad Airways to operate 787 Dreamliner on the Abu Dhabi – Casablanca route


Dec 12 2017

Effective from May 1, 2018, Etihad Airways is set to operate its flagship Boeing 787 Dreamliner on the Abu Dhabi – Casablanca route. Casablanca will be the first North African destination to be served by Etihad Airways’ next generation aircraft which is fast becoming the backbone of the Abu Dhabi-based carrier’s long-haul fleet. The three-class aircraft, featuring eight First Suites, 28 Business Studios and 199 Economy Smart Seats, will replace the Airbus A330s currently operating daily on the route and will offer additional cargo capacity.

Introduction of the 787 Dreamliner will also see a scheduling change that will optimise timings for customers travelling to and from Morocco’s port city and commercial hub. Etihad Airways will maintain an early morning arrival into Casablanca and operate a revised mid-morning return service that will improve connectivity to a wider network of destinations across Asia and Australia, including Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Melbourne, Perth, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are delighted to deploy our flagship Boeing 787 Dreamliner on yet another route that will give even more guests the opportunity to experience our next generation aircraft.
