The success follows the recent announcement that from 30 March Etihad will increase its flying programme to Ireland with daily flights between Abu Dhabi and Dublin.

Etihad will be the only airline operating flights from Dublin to the Middle East and beyond. Geert Boven, Etihad Airways executive vice president sales and services, said: “Since launching flights to Dublin, Etihad has enjoyed great success in this market and we are very proud that the Irish travel trade has recognised the impact the airline has made in Ireland in such a short period of time.”

This award followed double honours for Etihad at the 2007 annual World Travel Awards when the airline picked up accolades for world’s leading flatbed seat and world’s leading travel television commercial.
