All 10 Saab 2000s in the Darwin fleet are to be painted with the Etihad Regional scheme by mid-year.

Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways has taken a one-third stake in Darwin.

The Lugano-based carrier launched a daily service between Geneva and the Italian capital in March 2011, and has since tripled its frequency on the route.
