Osaka to become airline’s second gateway in Japan after Tokyo
Etihad Airways is set to expand its network with five Abu Dhabi-Osaka flights per week from 1 October 2023.
Commenting on the news, Etihad Airways CEO Antonoaldo Neves said: “We’re delighted to introduce flights to Osaka for the first time. As one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities, I know visitors will enjoy exploring its heritage and sampling some of Osaka’s renowned hospitality.
“Equally, the new route opens up Abu Dhabi to visitors from Osaka, and we look forward to welcoming guests to our vibrant home as well as giving them access to our growing, global network.”
The introduction of the route will support the growing trade and tourism ties between the countries and complement Etihad’s existing Tokyo service by providing another gateway to Japan.
Etihad will operate Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners on the route.
