From the Middle East

May 7, 2014

With the advent of both Dubai and Abu Dhabi as major east-west transit hubs, frequent service to much of Australia is offered from these two cities on Emirates and Etihad airlines respectively.  Emirates offers the popular Airbus A-380 on many of its services to Sydney and Melbourne. A new partnership between Virgin Group Australia and Etihad suggests a future robust network of routes from throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East connecting via Abu Dhabi into Australia with domestic connections in Australia by Virgin Australia.
