Etihad Airways has announced that it plans to increase the frequency of many of its international services to Abu Dhabi, including flights to and from the UK.

The Middle Eastern airline said that it will boost its weekly flights by 21 per cent in October. The additional flights will improve 17 routes across Etihad's global network.

Flights to and from London Heathrow will rise from 14 to 19 flights a week.

In addition, there will be extra flights from European hubs including Frankfurt, Geneva and Dublin.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways' chief executive, commented: "Customers will benefit tremendously with the extra number of flights and a much improved timetable which will see better, shorter and more frequent flight transfer connections at our Abu Dhabi base.

"By adding depth and frequency to our expanding route network we are able to offer a simpler, more convenient travel experience for the flying public."

Etihad also plans to add a number of new routes in the autumn, including flights to Milan, Singapore, Brisbane and Kathmandu.
