Etihad Airways to add daily service to Venice
The new service will feature an Airbus A319, which has 16 business-class seats and 90 seats in economy. Paired with Alitalia, its codeshare and equity partner, Etihad Airways will have 35 weekly flights to and from Italy, including twice daily flights to Rome and Milan.
Etihad’s Venice flight will offer convenient travel times.
Venice is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, while Italy is the world’s fifth most visited country according to the World Tourism Organization.
Etihad Airways started offering flights to Milan in 2007, adding Rome in 2014.
“Launching our service to Venice further supports a very popular passenger route between Italy, our Abu Dhabi hub and onwards throughout Etihad Airways’ growing network, as far afield as Australia," Kevin Knight, Etihad Airways’ chief strategy and planning officer, said. "Together with our codeshare and equity partner Alitalia, we are also strengthening the significant trade relationship between Italy and the UAE.”
