Etihad Airways has announced plans to increase Airbus A380 service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Abu Dhabi International Airport in response to heightened demand from guests traveling between the two destinations.

Beginning on June 1st, 2017, the airline will upgrade its second flight between Abu Dhabi and New York JFK to its A380 aircraft.

The new service will join the airline’s existing daily A380 service, replacing the current daily Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

Etihad first began welcoming guests on board its first A380 flight between New York JFK and Abu Dhabi in November 2015.
