Abu Dhabi/UAE: Etihad Airways announced its plans to launch five weekly flights to Osaka, Japan, starting from October 1, 2023. This move will establish a vital link between one of the world's most culturally vibrant cities and Etihad's extensive global network.

Antonoaldo Neves, the Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways, expressed his delight at the introduction of flights to Osaka, highlighting the city's cosmopolitan nature and its rich heritage that visitors will have the opportunity to explore.

He also emphasized that the new route will not only bring tourists from Osaka to Abu Dhabi but also provide access to Etihad's expanding global network.

Osaka, known as the 'Kitchen of Japan,' offers an exceptional culinary scene featuring Michelin-starred restaurants and a diverse range of eateries serving delicacies like takoyaki (octopus balls), okonomiyaki (savoury pancakes), and sushi.

Apart from its gastronomic delights, Osaka provides visitors with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the city's historical ambiance by visiting Osaka Castle and experiencing the samurai era.

The vibrant Dontonbori district, with its dazzling neon-lit streets and abundant entertainment options, beckons travelers seeking an exhilarating experience. Moreover, shopaholics can indulge in retail therapy in the numerous shopping districts spread across the city.

Etihad Airways plans to operate the new route using a state-of-the-art Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. Passengers will be able to enjoy the airline's renowned service, excellent catering options, and a wide range of onboard entertainment.

With the introduction of flights to Osaka, Etihad Airways aims to provide a seamless travel experience for both tourists and business travelers, while simultaneously strengthening the ties between Japan and the United Arab Emirates.
