Passengers are offered one night’s free accommodation at the Radisson Blu hotel until September 15
Etihad Airways will offer one night’s free accommodation at the Radisson Blu hotel on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island to all guests travelling in Economy Class from the Middle East, Africa and Pakistan, and stopping over in the UAE capital.
The offer is valid until September 15, the airline said in a statement.
The offer comes as more than 4.4 million guest arrivals were recorded in Abu Dhabi in 2016, proving that the emirate is becoming a favourite hub for stopovers.
Mohammad Al Bulooki, Etihad Airways executive vice president commercial, said: “Etihad Airways is delighted to invite guests to experience Abu Dhabi for themselves. The capital of the United Arab Emirates has so much to offer all types of travellers, whether they are after culture, a beach break or sports and adventure.
“As the national airline, Etihad Airways is an integral part of this incredible city and those who transit through Abu Dhabi should be encouraged by us to experience it. This offer is for guests to make time to explore the many attractions Abu Dhabi has to offer during their stopover.
"The beautiful desert; a visit to the spectacular Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – among the world’s biggest; a tour of the many attractions on Yas Island, or sampling the emirate’s world class hotels and restaurants are all part of the Abu Dhabi experience.”
Etihad Airways has been running stopover programmes since 2011, and offering guests a variety of services including airport meet and assist, transportation, accommodation, tours, and visa processing services.For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
