Etihad Airlines have today begun a twice daily service from Manchester to Abu Dhabi. The new move means that there are 14 flights per week from the north west airport.
Etihad have also opened a new maintenance facility at the airport which has created seven new skilled jobs.
This is excellent news for the airport and Andrew Harrison, Manchester Airport's managing director is clearly delighted: “These initiatives reflect Etihad’s consistent commitment to the north of England, which will enable individual travellers and local businesses to use Manchester as a convenient hub to travel throughout the world. Etihad is a hugely important player in our long-haul network and we welcome its new staff to Manchester Airport.”
