Etihad Airways is to resume flights to more destinations

The UAE’s Etihad Airways is to fly to 58 destinations around the world, as global travel restrictions ease. Destinations include those in the Middle East, North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

The airline is gradually resuming services to more cities, following the ease of travel restrictions by UAE regulatory authorities on outbound and inbound travel for citizens and residents.

All travel remains subject to the entry and health regulations set by the UAE authorities, and those at the end destination.

“We are delighted to announce the gradual expansion of normal scheduled services to more cities across our global network,” said Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said.”The easing of restrictions on travel to and from the UAE is an important first step and a great development for Abu Dhabi. By August we aim to operate approximately 45 percent of our pre-COVID capacity.

“While we have continued to operate a schedule of special passenger, cargo and humanitarian flights over the last few months, the priority is now to build the network back up on markets that have opened up, and to provide a secure and hygienic flying environment across the entire guest journey.

“Over the last few months, we have seized every opportunity to improve our processes, review our product offering, and to undertake the biggest fleet maintenance programme in our history. We are tremendously grateful to our customers and partners for their continued loyalty.”
