Etihad Airways touched down for the first time in Denpasar, Bali, on Wednesday, marking the launch of regular services between Abu Dhabi and the island destination.

On arrival in Denpasar, the aircraft was met with the traditional water cannon salute and Etihad’s Captains waved the UAE and Indonesian flags from the cockpit to celebrate the launch of the non-stop connection.

The new service operates four times a week, using a state-of-the-art Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner featuring Etihad’s renowned Business Studios and Economy Smart seats.

With 28 seats in Business and 262 seats in Economy boasting Etihad’s E-Box entertainment system, in-seat power, and in-flight Wi-Fi connectivity, guests can expect a comfortable and enjoyable travel experience, complemented by world-class service and hospitality.

Arik De, Etihad’s Chief Revenue and Commercial Officer said: “I am honoured to be welcomed to the island today and proud to bring a full flight on our inaugural journey into Bali.

“We are thrilled to add Bali to the growing list of destinations we serve directly from Abu Dhabi.

“It becomes our second destination in Indonesia, adding to the capital Jakarta.

“We look forward to connecting our guests from the Middle East, Europe and across our global network with the Indonesian tropical island.”
