Etihad deploys third A380 on London route

A third daily Airbus A380 superjumbo has been deployed by Etihad Airways between Heathrow and Abu Dhabi.

The additional A380 service is in response to increased customer demand, boosting capacity across four daily flights on the route.

The UAE carrier’s A380 is configured with 68 economy space seats, 337 economy smart seats, 70 Business Studios on the upper deck, nine first class apartments, a three-room suite plus a bar, lounge area and shower.

Global sales vice president Ed Fotheringham said: “Our third A380 on flights to London is great news for our guests.

“The aircraft adds increased capacity between Abu Dhabi and London Heathrow and is ideally timed to further connect people between the UK, the UAE and onwards across Etihad’s growing global network.”
