The Persian Gulf carrier will begin its service at DFW on December 3 and then increase to daily flights on April 16, 2015. Etihad said it will use a Boeing 777-200LR on the route with eight first class seats, 40 business class seats and 177 seats in economy.
"Our Dallas/Fort Worth service was announced at the end of last year and the market response has been extremely strong," said Etihad chief executive James Hogan in a statement. "The increased frequency also reinforces our commitment to the United States and will strengthen the country's deep commercial and bilateral ties with the United Arab Emirates."
Etihad's competitors, Emirates Airline and Qatar Airways, both have daily service to the Middle East from DFW Airport. Earlier this month, Emirates increased its capacity on its Dubai route with the use of a double-decker Airbus A380 on the route.
