KATHMANDU, June 6: Etihad Airways  announced the launch of a new service between Abu Dhabi and Barcelona from 21 November  2018.

In a statement, Etihad said the route will initially operate five times a week with a two-class Airbus A330-200, before becoming a daily operation on March 31, 2019.

Barcelona will be the second city to be connected by Etihad Airways in Spain after Madrid.

The Catalonia region is popular as a business and a leisure destination.

“As one of the largest unserved markets from our Abu Dhabi base, Barcelona - a hub of culture, commerce, tourism, education, fashion and science, has witnessed a significant increase in travel demand from the emirate, and from across our wider network,” said Etihad Airways CEO Peter Baumgartner.
