Etihad Airways has launched its first ever scheduled flights linking Abu Dhabi and Barcelona on 28 November.

The new route will initially be operated five times a week by a two-class Airbus A330-200 before becoming a daily operation from 31 March 2019.

The new link will provide business and leisure travellers with convenient timings to travel between Abu Dhabi and Barcelona, also providing seamless onward connections through Abu Dhabi to major cities in the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia, China, Japan, and Australia.

Etihad Airways operates an extensive codeshare partnership with Air Europa (UX) allowing guests a seamless transfer with the Spanish airline’s services between Barcelona and Madrid. Etihad also codeshares with Air Europa beyond Madrid to 19 cities in Europe, South America, Mexico and the Caribbean.

Flights will depart Abu Dhabi as 2h20, arriving in Barcelona at 07h15 on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The return service will depart Barcelona at 10h10, arriving in Abu Dhabi at 20h00 on the same days. Flights are operated with a A330-200.
