Etihad Airways will introduce the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on its flights from Abu Dhabi to Jakarta, Indonesia, and will upgrade its daily morning service to Male, Maldives, to the wide-body aircraft on a seasonal basis.

The airline’s two daily scheduled services from Abu Dhabi to the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, will be operated on a year-round basis by a two-class Boeing 787-9. Effective 27 October, the overnight service will transition to a Dreamliner operation and the aircraft will be introduced on the daytime service from 14 December 2019.  

The airline will also operate the next-generation aircraft on its daily morning service from Abu Dhabi to Male from 27 October2019 to 30 April 2020. This morning service will continue to be supplemented by a second overnight departure.

Etihad Airways is one of the world’s largest operators of the Boeing 787 and is introducing the aircraft to these destinations to benefit its point-to-point customers travelling to and from Abu Dhabi, as well as those connecting to and from the Etihad global network.
