Etihad Airways will resume flights between Abu Dhabi and Shanghai in China from 27 July, initially with one weekly service before ramping up frequencies.
The service will operate with a Boeing 777-300ER, featuring both Business and Economy cabins.
Robin Kamark, Etihad Aviation Group CCO, said: “We are delighted to announce the resumption of scheduled services to China, as we gradually return to more destinations on our global network, supporting the recovery of economic and social activities worldwide.
“Our priority now is to build the network back up on markets that have opened up and to provide a secure and hygienic flying environment across the entire guest journey.
“The restarting of passenger services between Abu Dhabi and Shanghai will cater to the large demand from business travellers in the UAE, China, and other economies in the Middle East and Africa.”
He added: “We are tremendously grateful to our customers and partners for their continued loyalty and we stand ready fly more frequencies to China when possible."
