Etihad Launches Abu Dhabi – Washington DC Flights

Etihad Airways today launched daily nonstop flights between Abu Dhabi and Washington DC, connecting the capital cities of the UAE and the USA for the first time. The inaugural flight touched down at Washington Dulles International Airport to a traditional water cannon salute marking the occasion.


Flight EY 131 departs Abu Dhabi daily at 1000 hrs, arriving in Washington DC at 1700 hrs the same day. The return flight, EY 130, takes off from Washington Dulles International Airport at 2230 hrs and lands back at Abu Dhabi International Airport at 2000 hrs the next day.


Etihad will operate the flight using a 3-class Airbus A340-500 aircraft, configured with 12 Diamond first, 28 Pearl business and 200 Coral economy class seats. On the ground, premium passengers can also enjoy the comfort and facilities of a newly-opened premium lounge in Washington Dulles International Airport’s Terminal A.


Washington DC joins New York and Chicago as Etihad’s third destination in the USA. The airline is targeting government and business travellers, together with growing leisure demand for success on the route.
