Dubai: Etihad Airways is boosting its services to Morocco to meet increased demand to and from the North African kingdom.

Effective May 1, a three-class Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will be introduced on the daily service from Abu Dhabi to Casablanca.

Etihad Airways will maintain an early morning arrival into Casablanca and operate a revised mid-morning return service.

The company has reportedly introduced a third weekly service to the Moroccan capital, Rabat. The extra flight will operate on Saturdays until May 12, and also from June 30 to September 29 to meet peak summer demand.
