Etihad Airways currently operates flights from Abu Dhabi to and from Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata and Mumbai.

The airline is looking to shift its focus to medium and long-haul destinations and move away from operating ultra-long-haul flights.

Despite this, Etihad still has around 10,000 seats per week of unused flight rights between India and Abu Dhabi.
