Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, is encouraging residents to start planning their summer getaway with the launch of its latest sale. Date or destination changes can be made for free.
An Eid gift for UAE residents, travellers can jet off with never seen before summer prices of up to 50% off. Lay back on sun-drenched beaches in the Maldives or explore ancient ruins in Athens. The sale ends on 12 May 2021 and is valid for travel until 20 November 2021.
Fares from Abu Dhabi to Casablanca start from just AED 995, Moscow from AED 1,495 and Zurich from AED 1,895. The sale extends across all of Etihad’s cabins, with return Business fares starting from AED 2,495 from Abu Dhabi to Colombo.
Travellers can even enjoy quarantine free travel on arrival into Casablanca, Geneva, Zurich and Moscow, and back into Abu Dhabi. For vaccinated residents and citizens returning to the capital from countries not on Abu Dhabi’s green list, the quarantine period has been reduced to five days.
As part of the airline’s ‘Year of the 50th’ programme, three lucky guests will win 50 times their flight fare in Etihad Credit. This can be used to pay for flights, upgrades and extras any time within two years.
That means, if a guest buys a ticket for AED 1,000 during the Summer Sale, they could win AED 50,000 to spend on flights in the future. To win, travellers need to book a flight between now and 12 May from Abu Dhabi to any destination on Etihad’s worldwide network and fly before 20 November 2021. Visit etihad.com for full terms and conditions.
Flying to, from, and via Abu Dhabi is supported by the airline’s fully redesigned sanitisation and safety programme, Etihad Wellness, which ensures the highest standards of hygiene are maintained at every stage of the customer journey.
This includes specially trained Wellness Ambassadors, a first in the industry, who provide essential travel health information and care on the ground and on every flight, so guests can fly with greater ease and confidence. All passengers travelling with Etihad receive complimentary Covid-19 insurance, which is valid for travel until 30 September 2021.
Etihad was the first airline in the world to announce it is operating with 100% of its crew on board vaccinated. To give guests peace of mind, Etihad is the only airline in the world requiring 100% of its passengers to show a negative PCR test before departure, and on arrival in Abu Dhabi.
Those wishing to book are advised to visit etihad.com and the app to view their options, and to remain informed on the appropriate entry regulations at their end destination.
