January 29, 2018 Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates –  Etihad Airways today reaffirmed its commitment to Nigeria with the announcement of two additional weekly flights on the popular Abu Dhabi–Lagos route, taking it to a daily service. 
 
The new Tuesday and Thursday services will start on 1 May 2018. The route will continue to be operated by a two-class Airbus A330, with 22 Business Class seats and 240 in Economy. 
 
Mohammad Al Bulooki, Etihad Airways Executive Vice President Commercial, said: “Nigeria is an important market for Etihad and our home of Abu Dhabi. The airline is committed to offering attractive schedules and choice to our guests travelling between Lagos and the UAE capital as well as convenient connections to destinations including the GCC, India and Asia. 
 
“Since launching the Lagos route in July 2012, Etihad has carried almost 600,000 passengers between our hub at Abu Dhabi International Airport and the commercial heart of Nigeria. It is pleased to be able to support the high demand for our service by soon operating the route on a daily basis.”
 
Guests travelling to Lagos on Etihad Airways will experience the airline's award-winning service by multinational cabin crew and onboard nannies, extensive inflight entertainment selections, and a choice of complimentary international meals and beverages. Depending on the class of travel, passengers can enjoy a generous baggage allowance of two bags of up to 23kg each in Economy Class and up to 32kg each in Business Class. 
 
As the trading centre of Africa and home to 21 million people, Lagos is a regional hub for many multinational companies. The additional flights will support trade links between Nigeria, the UAE and beyond, with cargo capacity set to grow from 54 tonnes to 75 tonnes per week in each direction. Key exports from Nigeria include leather goods and food items, while imports comprise consumer and fashion goods from the Middle East and Far East.
