Etihad Airways deploys Boeing 787 on Seoul route

Etihad Airways introduced the Boeing 787-9 on its scheduled daily service from Abu Dhabi to Seoul.

The two-class 787 Dreamliner service replaces the Airbus A340-600 aircraft previously operated on the route. The aircraft features 299 seats with 28 business studios and 271 economy smart seats.

Mohammad Al Bulooki, Etihad Airways executive vice president commercial, said: “Seoul has been a very successful route for us since it was launched in December 2010 and we are fast approaching our one millionth traveller milestone. There has been a steady increase in number of business and leisure travellers flying to South Korea from Abu Dhabi and the GCC region, and vice versa.”

The airline has a fleet of 16 Boeing 787 aircraft. The Seoul route also includes food and beverage managers in business class and a Norland approved flying nanny in economy class for families with young children.
