Etihad Airways will scrap flights to Iran and Uganda next year, the latest routes to be dropped as it pursues a strategy review.
The Abu Dhabi airline has spent over a decade building a global network that links passengers travelling between East and West.
Etihad will stop flying to Iran’s capital Tehran on January 24 and Uganda’s Entebbe on March 25, the airline said yesterday.
The five weekly Tehran services are to be reduced to twice a week between December 25 and January 23, before it is suspended entirely on January 24.
An Etihad spokeswoman declined to say why Tehran was being suspended, but said affected passengers could switch to an alternative travel date between December 25 and January 23 or be refunded.
Entebbe is being dropped after a commercial review of the route’s performance.
