Abu Dhabi-based carrier to launch services from June 10

Etihad Airways launches transit flights to 20 destinations

The airline has implemented an extensive sanitisation and customer safety programme and is practicing the highest standards of hygiene at every part of the customer journey.

Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways has announced plans to link 20 cities in Europe, Asia and Australia via the UAE capital.

It comes as the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) announced on Wednesday that UAE airports would reopen for transit flights.

Etihad recently launched links from Melbourne and Sydney to London Heathrow, allowing direct transfer connections to and from the UK capital via Abu Dhabi.  

Throughout June, transfer connections via Abu Dhabi will be available from Jakarta, Karachi, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Melbourne, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo to major cities across Europe including Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, Dublin, Frankfurt, Geneva, London Heathrow, Madrid, Milan, Paris Charles de Gaulle, and Zurich.

The airline has implemented an extensive sanitisation and customer safety programme and is practicing the highest standards of hygiene at every part of the customer journey.

This includes catering, aircraft and cabin deep-cleaning, check-in, health screening, boarding, inflight, crew interaction, meal service, disembarkation and ground transportation, among others.

Passengers are reminded that they must wear a face mask during the duration of any flight.
