(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), will launch direct flights to Sana'a, Yemen's political and commercial capital on September 1, 2013.

Sana'a will be the airline's eighth destination on the Arabian Peninsula beyond Abu Dhabi, joining Bahrain, Dammam, Doha, Jeddah, Kuwait, Muscat and Riyadh. Flights to Sana'a will operate four times a week.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways President and Chief Executive Officer, said: "The launch of direct services to Sana'a is consistent with our strategy of adding depth and scale to our network and targeting areas of growth in emerging markets."

More than 90,000 Yemini nationals live in the UAE, and the country is Yemen's largest regional trading partner with annual trade valued at over US2 billion, of which US1.6 billion is made up of UAE exports*.

The new Sana'a route announcement follows the launch of a number of new services in 2013 from Etihad Airways' Abu Dhabi hub to cities such as Washington D.C. (April 1), Amsterdam (May 15), S?o Paulo (June 1) and Ho Chi Minh City (October 1).
