Etihad Regional formed from stake in Darwin Airline

Etihad RegionalEtihad Airways has taken a 33.3% stake in Swiss carrier Darwin Airline, and will rebrand it as Etihad Regional in the hope of extending its brand coverage in Europe.

The move will come into effect in June 2014 and will see Darwin’s Saab 2000 fleet based in both Zurich and Berlin. Etihad will begin a new A330-200 link from its Abu Dhabi base to Zurich to coincide with the move, and provide onward connections through Darwin to a number of European cities.

This will naturally unlock worldwide onward connections through Etihad’s Abu Dhabi hub for many new passengers in Europe.
