Update At Abu Dhabi

Mon Apr 04, 2005 2:51 am

For anybody interested, some news from Abu Dhabi-UAE...

- Construction work has started on the new apron, which will provide an extra 9 parking bays, of which some will be A380 capable. To be completed by Sep 2005.

- Approval has been obtained for other new construction:
1. New Runway rumoured to be 4 km north parallel to current 13/31.
2. New terminal building will be erected between the two runways.
3. Existing terminal will become LCC/VIP/Cargo area (current GATS hangars has been cordoned off with contruction underway I believe for LCC ops).

-Etihad: A6-EYY returned to owners TAM yesterday as PT-MVB direct SBGR. A6-EYV has returned from Filton in ETD livery, and has entered service. Still no news about A6-EYW which was last seen departing to Filton for painting...

Thats about it...

Hi,

A6-EYX is still operating for EY under lease from TAM (used to be PT-MVA). I don't know when the lease expires on YX, or what the cabins on the non-TAM aircraft look like.
