This week, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, Etihad Airways announced that it will resume service to Kolkata as part of an expansion of its operations in India.
Beginning on March 26, 2023, the airline will operate daily flights between Abu Dhabi and Kolkata, providing a total of seven nonstop flights each week to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport (CCU).
Etihad Airways now offers service to 14 locations on the Indian Subcontinent, including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives, following the recent reintroduction of flights to Kolkata.
Customers who want to travel to Indian Subcontinent and from the Indian Subcontinent, including those who book international flight tickets from US to India, now have even more connectivity thanks to Etihad Airways’ continued network expansion and the resumption of daily flights to this vital gateway. Martin Drew, Senior Vice President of Global Sales & Cargo of Etihad Airways, had said that this will improve connectivity between India and the United States via Abu Dhabi, where international customers can profit from the USA Preclearance service for hassle-free entrance into the United States.
Eithad believes that the launch of this service will be very beneficial to their guests, whether they are going for leisure, business, or to visit their family and friends and it will be a great summer start.
