http://www.ausbt.com.au/etihad-to-start-dusseldorf-flights-in-december Virgin Australia passengers will be able to make single-change connections to Dusseldorf via Abu Dhabi once Middle Eastern partner airline Etihad starts flights to the German city in December. Flights will initially be four days a week, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, but timings are different depending on the day of the week. So if you're planning a Dusseldorf flight, make sure your flight from Australia gives you the best connection in Abu Dhabi. Airbus A330-300 planes will be used on the route, with First, Business and Economy classes on board. On Mondays and Fridays, flight EY23 leaves Abu Dhabu at 0205, arriving in Dusseldorf at 0625. It then leaves Dusseldorf as EY24 at 1100, arriving back in Abu Dhabi at 2025.
