Etihad plans frequency boost on Bangalore route
Etihad Airways is planning to increase its frequency to Bangalore following the success of its services to Karnataka’s capital city, moving from its current four return flights to a daily service from March 25, 2011.
“This latest increase in our Indian flying is indicative of the huge confidence we have in this important market,” said Neerja Bhatia, Etihad Airways’ country manager in India.
Etihad operates a two class Airbus A320 to Bangalore, configured to carry 136 passengers, with 16 in business class and 120 in economy class.
The UAE-based airline also provides a complimentary chauffeur service for its premium class passengers flying in and out of Bangalore Airport using Mercedes E series cars. This service also operates in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Hyderabad.
