KARACHI: Last week Mr. Ahmed Zahoor, General Manager-Pakistan Etihad Airways hosted travel trade partners dinner at Movenpick Hotel Karachi.
The evening was brimful with the seniors of the travel trade industry of Karachi making the event all the more illustrious and memorable.
While speaking on the occasion Mr. Ahmed Zahoor said that Etihad Airways is expanding its network and opening new destinations. Etihad Airways has already announced the launch of eleven new destinations this year, including Kolkata, St. Petersburg, Düsseldorf, Copenhagen, Osaka, Kozhikode, Thiruvananthapuram and Boston. Malaga, Mykonos and Lisbon were introduced as summer destinations, but the Portuguese capital will now become a year-round service. The new routes will be rolled out, starting in September and through to January 2024, according to the airline’s winter schedule.
Etihad Airways, the Abu Dhabi-based airline that started operations globally in 2003 and entered Pakistan’s market a year later, considers the South Asian country as an integral part of its network. It flies to three key destinations in Pakistan, Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad.
The air carrier sees a lot of potential for air travel to and from Pakistan. Important international segments are the Middle East, North America, and Europe, particularly the UK where Pakistanis travel frequently. Etihad Airways believes that Pakistani travelers are discerning and demanding and that is why the airline ensures that superior services are provided at all levels.
