DALLAS (AP) - Etihad Airways next year will offer three round-trip flights per week between the United Arab Emirates and DFW International Airport.

The Persian Gulf carrier on Thursday announced plans to use 237-passenger Boeing 777 jets to fly between DFW airport and Abu Dhabi.

Etihad, like Middle Eastern competitors Emirates and Qatar Airways, has been expanding U.S. service. Qatar announced last week that it will begin daily nonstop flights between DFW airport and Doha next July.

Etihad’s DFW airport flights will begin Dec. 3, 2014, and depart Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The airline expects many passengers to come from the oil and gas industry.

Etihad already flies to New York, Washington and Chicago and plans to add Los Angeles in June.
