Dubai, UAE, September 3, 2017: Etihad Airways has introduced the Boeing 787-9 aircraft on its daily service from Abu Dhabi to Amsterdam, delivering greater levels of comfort to its customers flying to and from Schiphol Airport.

Etihad Airways previously operated the 787 Dreamliner on the Amsterdam service in the summer of 2016. The introduction of the ultra-modern, fuel-efficient aircraft heralds the start of a year-round service to the Netherlands.

The 787 Dreamliner features Etihad Airways' next generation Business and Economy Class cabins, configured with 299 seats - 28 Business Studios and 271 Economy Smart Seats.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways Chief Executive Officer, said: “The decision to upgrade our daily Amsterdam service to the 787 Dreamliner aircraft reflects the importance of the Netherlands market.

“We received great customer feedback when we first flew the ‎aircraft to the Dutch capital last summer, and I'm very pleased that more travellers will now be able to enjoy the superior levels of comfort and technology it offers, year-round.‎”

The Business Studios offer an increase of 20 per cent in personal space and a fully-flat bed of up to 80.5 inches in length. Upholstered in Poltrona Frau leather, each Business Studio is equipped with an in-seat massage, a pneumatic cushion control system which enables passengers to adjust the firmness and comfort of their seat, and an 18-inch personal touch-screen TV.

The comfortable Economy Smart Seats provide enhanced comfort with a seat width of approximately 19 inches and an 11.1 inch personal TV monitor at each seat.
The airline's Boeing 787 fleet is equipped with the latest in-flight entertainment system offering more than 750 hours of movies and television programmes, including live news and sports channels, as well as hundreds of music choices and a selection of games for both adults and children.

Etihad Airways currently operates a fleet of 16 Boeing 787-9s from its home base, Abu Dhabi, to 14 destinations: Amman, Beijing, Beirut, Brisbane, Düsseldorf, Johannesburg, Perth, Riyadh, Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo, Washington, D.C. and Zurich.
