Etihad Airways is providing additional flights between Pakistan and Jeddah during the Holy month of Ramadan.

The services – which will be operated by two and three class Airbus A330s and A320s – also open a range of short and long-haul connection options for air travellers in Saudi Arabia flying via Etihad to destinations around the world.
 
Amer Khan, Etihad Airways’ Country Manager in Pakistan said: “The additional flights to Jeddah will cater for the great demand from Umra travellers during the holy month of Ramadan and will significantly enhance the travel options.
 
Etihad launched its service to Riyadh with eight services per week in December 2004. It commenced operations in the same month to Dammam with13 flights per week and in May 2006 commenced daily flights to Jeddah.
