Etihad will add Osaka to its network.

The Abu Dhabi-based airline will launch its flights to Osaka on October 1, adding a second gateway to Japan. Etihad will operate five weekly flights using Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.

We’re delighted to introduce flights to Osaka for the first time,” said Antonoaldo Neves, Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways. “As one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities, I know visitors will enjoy exploring its heritage and sampling some of Osaka’s renowned hospitality.

“Equally, the new route opens up Abu Dhabi to visitors from Osaka, and we look forward to welcoming guests to our vibrant home as well as giving them access to our growing, global network.”

The new route will add to Etihad's presence in Japan where it currently operates flights to Tokyo.
