Etihad Airways has welcomed the arrival of three new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, increasing its fleet strength to 88 aircraft.

The national airline of the UAE announced the latest additions on February 23, 2024, as the 787-9s arrived at Abu Dhabi Zayed International Airport (AUH).

All three planes include Etihad’s new cabin interior, set in a two-class configuration of 32 business suites and 271 economy seats. The planes are set to enter service later this month.

“We are thrilled to welcome these brand-new, state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliners to Abu Dhabi. Their arrival is key to our network expansion strategy and comes at the perfect time as we continue to add multiple new destinations and expand frequencies into key markets,” Antonoaldo Neves, Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Airways, said.

He added: “These new aircraft support our commitment to Abu Dhabi, allowing us to bring more guests to experience the incredible capital of the UAE, either as their end destination or on a stopover when connecting across our expanding network.”

The 787-9s will further bolster Etihad’s fleet as it launches additional destinations over the coming months.

On March 31, 2024, Etihad will begin flying to Boston, its fourth US gateway, and will soon add Nairobi and Bali to its network.

It will also operate summer routes to Nice, Malaga, Mykonos and Santorini.

The arrival of the three new Dreamliners follows the delivery of a Boeing 787-10 in October 2023.

Etihad now operates 43 Dreamliners, along with the Airbus A380, A350, A320 family, and Boeing 777.

Etihad’s stated ambition is to fly to 125 destinations with a fleet of more than 160 aircraft by 2030…
