Etihad is ramping up capacity on its existing thrice-weekly services between Brisbane, Singapore and Abu Dhabi to offer daily flights using A330-200 aircraft from February 1.

The new flights will add 1,048 seats a week to the route, demand for which Etihad expects will be created through close co-operation with Queensland government and tourism industry support.

Etihad CEO James Hogan said: “We have just signed a new marketing agreement with Tourism and Events Queensland to encourage more visitors from the Middle East, UK and Europe to holiday in the Sunshine State.”
