Starting June 15, 2024, Etihad Airways will offer direct flights between Nice and Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates). The airline first served Nice Côte d’Azur in June 2023, enhancing connectivity between the Côte d’Azur and the Middle East, thus contributing to the economic and tourist dynamism of the region.

Frequency and Schedule of Flights

The service will operate twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Flights will depart from Nice at 11:15 AM and land in Abu Dhabi at 7:15 PM. The airline has already put tickets for these flights on sale, with the first departure scheduled for June 15, 2024.

Impact on Tourism and Business

These direct flights will promote the development of business tourism and strengthen ties between the French Riviera and the United Arab Emirates.

In July and August 2023, Nice Côte d’Azur Airport reported passenger traffic similar to 2019, reaching 3.3 million travelers, but with 675 fewer aircraft movements. This efficiency is due to better utilization of aircraft capacity and the success of long-haul flights.

The airport witnessed the opening of 26 new routes, including three long-haul to Atlanta, Doha, and Riyadh, enhancing its international positioning. Traffic with the United States has particularly increased, while the United Kingdom remains the top international market.

Meanwhile, cross-country connections within France continued to grow, accounting for 40% of domestic links, catering to specific transportation needs.

This performance reflects the airport’s strategy of combining sustainable development with operational efficiency.
