Etihad Airways announced that it would introduce its first “all economy” class aircraft into its fleet in this October. The two Airbus A320s will be configured to carry 162 economy class passengers. Etihad plans to expand the “all economy” fleet to 10 aircraft in total so that the airline will be able to launch more new short haul flights which have not such demand for premium travel.

The all economy cabin aircraft destinations that have high demand for economy traffic – these are especially routes from Abu Dhabi to Alexandria, Calicut, Colombo, Damascus, Doha and Thiruvananthapuram.
