Etihad Airways will open the route Abu Dhabi - Sao Paulo
Etihad Airways, United Arab Emirates airline operator and with main hub at Abu Dhabi International Airport, has announced it will open the route Abu Dhabi - Sao Paulo, from June 2013.
Brazil is becoming an increasingly attractive country for many airline operators, especially following a period of several years with two major sports competitions: the Summer Olympics - 2016 and the World Football Championship in 2014. But it has also become one of the favorite destinations of more and more tourists.
Etihad Airways will operate daily flights to Sao Paulo, Brazil, from June 2013, with Airbus A340-600 aircraft. The information uploaded in the GDS also presents the program that will fly between Abu Dhabi - Sao Paulo, but it does not coincide with the program presented by the official release.
Program uploaded to GDS:
EY191 AUH 08: 15 - 16: 20 GRU 346 D
EY190 GRU 22: 45 - 20: 30 + 1 AUH 346 D
The program proposed in the press release:
EY171 AUH 09: 45 - 17: 55 GRU 346 D
EY170 GRU 00: 35 - 20: 20 AUH 346 D
Until the launch date, the program may change, depending on free slots or bureaucracy and government issues. At 1 June, 2013 will be inaugurated, but it will also celebrate the fact that Etihad Airways becomes the first company to operate flights to 6 continents.
