Etihad Holidays has launched operations in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain to provide a wide choice of package holiday options to travellers in the four countries.

The move follows the introduction of Etihad Airways’ holiday division in the UAE, UK, Germany, India and North America.

Launched in 2004, Etihad Holidays allows Etihad Airways passengers to book their flights together with their hotel, rental car, transfers, tours and activities, with real time availability, at the best available prices.

Guests can design their dream holiday from the comfort of their own home on the Etihad Holidays website to tailor-make packages to suit their individual needs, the company said in a statement.

Darren Peisley, managing director of Etihad Holidays’ parent Hala Group, said: “We continue our growth across the region, ensuring a new wave of customers have access to the great range of packages and hotels on offer through Etihad Holidays.

"We are excited to bring to residents of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain access to great rates for over 150 destinations around the world.”

Etihad Holidays is part of the Hala Group which brings together supporting services for the Etihad Aviation Group that are vital to its future growth.

The core components include the Global Loyalty Company, Etihad Holidays, Hala Abu Dhabi, Hala Travel Management and the Amadeus Joint Venture.
