Etihad Airways doubles A380 service to New York JFK
Etihad Airways introduced its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft on its second daily service between the UAE capital and New York JFK. All 14 weekly flights between the two cities are now operated by the double-decker aircraft.
Guests flying on all Etihad Airways flights from Abu Dhabi to the airline’s six U.S. ports of entry – New York JFK Airport, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Francisco – are processed through the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Preclearance facility available at Abu Dhabi International Airport, which means they pass through all U.S. immigration and customs checks in Abu Dhabi and arrive at their U.S. destination as domestic passengers. The airline also operates a dedicated Premium Lounge within the CBP facility.
