JED connects well in one direction only JED - AUH - HYD connects well, however HYD - AUH - JED involves a 6 hour layover at AUH.

The decision comes in the wake of KLM withdrawal of AMS-HYD in Febraury/March 2009.

Rgs,

I don't think so, EY would have started HYD in any case, irrespective of KLM's presence in HYD.

No doubt that KLM withdrawal helped in boosting EY interest of this market since connections to Europe/Africa/US were therefore cut via the AMS hub.

KLM's withdrawal has absolutely nothing to do with EY in HYD. In fact, when KLM withdrew, BA immediately launched HYD, so it has helped BA more than anyone else.

EY is primarily targeting O&D + Middle East + LON + JFK + ORD + YYZ bound pax where as KLM was mainly after UK + North America bound traffic.

Actually EY was granted rights to HYD last year at around this time IIRC, even before it was public that KLM would withdraw AMS - HYD.

Also even if there weren't connections to EU/US places AUH - HYD flight can easily survive on the feeder from other GCC countries AMM,BEY,DAM and plus the fact of a good O&D from AUH itself.

As Behramjee and Ojas have stated above, KLM really did not have much to do with EY's decision.

When KLM left, British Airways came in to take over their leftover market. Lufthansa and British Airways fill the gap left by KLM very well.

If you think EY decision to start HYD service has no relationship with KLM withdrawal from the market, it certaintly will be benefited by the decision of Kuwait Airways to cancel its 5 weekly Kuwait - Hyderabad service from 25 October 2009. Kuwait Airways leaves days before EY starts flights in HYD.

Yes this is 100% true!

Expect Etihad to re launch Colombo from this November as well with A 320s.

Kuwait Airways withdrawal from HYD (October 2009) will certainly pave the way for AY arrival (November 2009).

AY welcome to HYD......

this was long overdue and expected. AY would have added HYD irrespective of the decision of Kuwait and KLM.

You guys mean EY right. Thats the code for Etihad, not AY. AY is for Finnair.
