On Tuesday, Etihad Airways announced that they will expand their seasonal summer 2020 service to Alexandria, Egypt and Salalah, Oman. Based on the success of these routes during the summer 2019 season, the carrier will add a fifth weekly frequency and extend the season by three weeks from June 25, 2020 to September 15, 2020.
