Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has announced plans to expand its network in China with daily non-stop, return services between Abu Dhabi and Shanghai – subject to government approval. The new flights, scheduled to commence on 1 March 2012, will make Shanghai the airline's 70th global destination. Etihad will operate an Airbus A330-200 aircraft on the Abu Dhabi-Shanghai route, configured in Pearl Business and Coral Economy class.

James Hogan, CEO, Etihad Airways announced the new services recently at the Aviation Outlook China Summit in Shanghai. "Shanghai, the most populous city in mainland China, is a strategically important addition to Etihad's China network. Together with our daily flights to the capital Beijing, the Shanghai route will offer travellers access to the two biggest centres for commerce, trade, government, culture, and tourism in China. For travellers originating in China, this means a wider choice of convenient flight options to the UAE, Middle East, Europe, and North America.” he said.
