"Paris is one of our busiest and best performing European routes, so the deployment of this upgraded service will benefit travellers to and from Abu Dhabi, and our popular connecting cities across Asia and Australia".

"Effective 1 July until 28 October 2017, A380 flights EY 203 and 204 between Abu Dhabi and Mumbai will be operated by an A340-600 aircraft", the airline said in a statement.

The additional A380 capacity will deliver more premium cabin seats in the First Apartments and Business Studios to meet strong business and leisure demand to Paris during the peak summer months. With the aircraft upgrade from a 328-seat Boeing 777, Etihad Airways is able to offer an all-A380 daily service from Paris to both Melbourne and Sydney via the airline's Abu Dhabi hub.

The flights in question are EY31 departing Abu Dhabi at 0215, arriving into Paris at 0750, and EY32, leaving the French capital at 1040 and arriving back into Abu Dhabi at 1930. This will make Paris the fifth destination in Etihad's A380 network, joining London, Sydney, New York and Melbourne.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways chief executive officer, said: "Flying our flagship product to France with additional seat capacity helps fulfil growing demand and meet our guests' expectations for an even greater travel experience with unmatched luxury, comfort and service".

In total, Etihad's A380 can seat up to 496 passengers, including two in the Residence, nine in first class, 70 in business class and 415 in economy.

The price for the residence on the Paris route is $10,750 each way, according to the airline.
