Etihad Airways recently announced its new route to Manila. The new destination follows airline’s ambitious plans to link Abu Dhabi to the world’s most important commercial and cultural centers. It will provide a major service to the 200,000 Filipino nationals based in the UAE.
“The UAE and the Philippines have enjoyed a tremendous bilateral relationship for many years, and this new Etihad service enables the close bond to develop further;’ said Charles Phelps-Penry, Regional General Manager – Asia Pacific, Etihad Airways.
The Manila route is just one of several new international destinations for the Abu Dhabi-based luxury carrier in 2006.
