Since the launch of its flights between Abu Dhabi and Brussels in October 2005, Etihad Airways has transported nearly two million passengers between the two capitals, in order to meet the strong demand for business and leisure travel. ...


Today, Friday, Etihad Airways celebrates the fifteenth anniversary of its maiden flights between Abu Dhabi and Brussels.

Etihad Airways carried large numbers of passengers via Abu Dhabi to and from Brussels, with the most popular destinations being Muscat in Oman, Sydney and Melbourne in Australia, Bangkok and Phuket in Thailand, Delhi and Mumbai in India, and Islamabad and Lahore in Pakistan.

Between 2011 and 2015, Etihad Airways increased its flights from three to eight weekly flights, and since 2016, the company has operated a daily flight, which has been reduced to three flights per week due to restrictions imposed to confront the emerging coronavirus pandemic, "Covid-19".

The flights between the two cities are operated on a two-class Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

“For 15 years, our flights between Abu Dhabi and Brussels have provided a strong connection between the two regions, creating opportunities for business and tourism travel to and from Brussels to Abu Dhabi and beyond,” said Anne Ramakers, Director of Etihad Airways in Belgium.
