Etihad Airways is planning to expand its services to 58 destinations throughout July and August.
These will include major gateways in the Middle East, North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Chicago, Istanbul, Baku, Bengaluru, Milan, Manila and Sydney are some of the cities that’ll be back on the Etihad map.
It’s subject to the lifting of international restrictions and the re-opening of individual markets, the carrier reemphasised.
Group CEO Tony Douglas highlighted that the airline aims to "operate approximately 45 per cent of its pre-COVID capacity by August".
