Etihad Airways recently announced that it will launch a seasonal twice-per-week service to the Greek island of Crete, starting June 15.
The flights are set to be operated on an Airbus A320 aircraft and will connect Abu Dhabi to the island’s city of Heraklion.
“Etihad Airways is delighted to provide travellers with more choice for their summer vacations in 2022,” said Martin Drew, Senior Vice President Sales & Cargo.
The airline will also return to Malaga, Santorini and Zanzibar this summer. All four destinations are set to be operated from mid-June.
“Crete is an ideal summer destination for travellers who are looking for a mix of beach and mountain adventures, and along with the hotspots of Malaga, Santorini and Zanzibar, makes for a perfect addition to Etihad’s summer network.”
The airline will launch its Abu Dhabi-Santorini service as of June 16 with three flights per week on an Airbus A320 aircraft.
