Etihad Airways has announced new seasonal flights to Malaga following an increase in demand.

Three weekly flights will operate via the Moroccan capital, Rabat, from June 26 to September 13, 2020.

Decisionmakers pointed out that the number of visitors from the UAE to Spain has been rising rapidly, thanks in part to a successful Schengen visa waiver programme introduced for UAE nationals in 2015. 

"Malaga has been on our wishlist for some time and we are tremendously pleased to announce summer season services to the Costa del Sol, a region which for decades has been popular with travellers from across the United Arab Emirates. This will be the only service between the UAE and the main gateway to Andalucía," said Robin Kamark, Chief Commercial Officer, Etihad Aviation Group. 

"Together with Madrid and Barcelona, Malaga will be Etihad’s third destination in Spain, further boosting our successful operations to the Iberian Peninsula. The new flights will be operated by our next-generation 787 Dreamliners, ensuring we provide the best product and service to our customers heading on business or on holiday."
