Etihad Airways will operate all flights to Paris with Airbus A380 aircraft
From October 1, Etihad Airways will also operate the second daily flight to Paris with the A380 aircraft. Charles de Gaulle - Paris International Airport will be the second in Europe, after London Heathrow Airport, to which all daily flights will be operated by Airbus A380 aircraft.
Since July 2017, Etihad has used Airbus A380 on just one of two daily flights to Paris. But the popularity of the route and the large number of passengers caused the company to make the decision to extend the use of the A380 aircraft and the second flight of the day.
