Etihad Regional launched in Switzerland
Swiss-based airline Etihad Regional was launched in Zurich on January 16th, heralding a new era of improved regional and international connections for travellers in Europe. Established in partnership with UAE national carrier, Etihad Airways, the new carrier will be operated by Switzerland’s Darwin Airline, which is headquartered in Lugano with a major hub in Geneva. The first aircraft to feature Etihad Regional’s branding, a 50-seat Saab 2000, and new cabin interiors and crew uniforms were showcased for the first time to international media at Zurich Airport, alongside an Etihad Airways Airbus A330-300 aircraft. The new livery will adorn all 10 aircraft in the fleet by the end of June 2014.
