Flight EY11 departed from Abu Dhabi at 9.25 am local time (delayed from 2.40am) and EY19 departed on schedule at 8.40 am local time. Etihad plans to operate EY17 on schedule which will depart at 1.30pm.

An additional flight to Manchester will operate at 2 pm from Abu Dhabi with passengers taken by coach to London. The EY17 Abu Dhabi to London flight that was diverted to Frankfurt on Saturday will operate to Manchester, due to capacity restraints in London, and passengers will be taken by coach to London.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are very pleased to be able to resume flights to London this morning and thank our customers for their patience and understanding during this challenging period.

“Etihad’s operations teams have worked tirelessly since the disruption began and can now implement their plans to ensure our passengers get to their homes and holidays in time for Christmas.”

Etihad operates three flights to London per day. The airline has asked customers to check its website for the latest flight information.
