Etihad Airways boosts A380 service to New York JFK

Etihad Airways will boost services to New York JFK with the addition of a second Airbus A380.

The new aircraft will be deployed on the second daily service which means all 14 weekly flights between the two cities are now operated by a double-decker aircraft.

The A380 has replaced a three-class Boeing 777-300ER previously operating one of the airline’s twice daily flights.

Guests flying on all Etihad Airways flights from Abu Dhabi to the airline’s six US ports of entry – New York JFK Airport, Washington, DC, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Francisco – are processed through the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) preclearance facility available at Abu Dhabi International Airport. The airline also operates a dedicated Premium Lounge within the CBP facility.
