Etihad Airways is preparing to launch seasonal summer flights from Abu Dhabi to the historic Egyptian city of Alexandria, one of oldest continuously-inhabited locations in the world, and which was home to the Great Library of Alexandria and the Pharos Lighthouse.
The famous coastal city is also a convenient gateway for many of the Egyptian expatriates living in the UAE and planning to return home during the summer holidays. Between July 2 and August 31, the Airbus A320 flights will depart Abu Dhabi at 2.15pm every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, arriving in Alexandria at 4:00pm. Return flights will depart Alexandria at 4:50pm, arriving back in Abu Dhabi at 10:40pm.
Robin Kamark, chief commercial officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said: "Alexandria is one of the most popular holiday destinations for UAE residents, and our new seasonal flights are timed to provide access for tourists during the peak summer period. They will also be a convenient option for many of the Egyptian nationals living in the UAE and planning to return home during the holiday season."
With the addition of these seasonal services, Etihad will operate a total of 32 flights per week to Egypt - 28 flights to Cairo and four to Alexandria.
