Abu Dhabi: Etihad Airways will have a championship-winning theme to its stand (ME350) at this year’s World Travel Market (WTM).

The airline, which sponsors Barclays Premier League winners Manchester City and Aviva Premiership winners Harlequins, will be displaying both championship trophies on its stand.

There will also be a special guest appearance from the Harlequins Rugby team from 11am—2pm on Wednesday.

Named the World’s Leading Airline for the third consecutive year at the World Travel Awards, Etihad Airways will be promoting its global network, including four new destinations — Ahmedabad (from 01/11/2012), Washington (from 31/03/2013), Sao Paulo (from 01/06/2013) and Ho Chi Minh City (from 01/10/2013). These routes have recently been added to Etihad Airways’ network, which now spans 86 passenger and cargo destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and North America.

In addition to the new destinations, Etihad Airways staff will be on hand to provide details about its airline partnerships, including the recently signed historic agreement with Air France-KLM to codeshare on flights across each airline’s networks, the first phase of a much larger strategic partnership which commenced on October 28, 2012.
