The airline continues to repatriate UAE citizens on return flights where possible.

Etihad Airways on Tuesday said it will add more special flights flying out of Abu Dhabi, to Melbourne and Amsterdam.

Etihad has been operating special flights that have allowed passengers stranded in the UAE due to Covid-19 restrictions the opportunity to return home. The flights also support the ‘UAE Food Security Programme’ by utilizing belly-hold capacity of passenger aircraft for cargo.

The airline continues to repatriate UAE citizens on return sectors where possible, and carry fresh produce as belly-hold cargo on the return segments back to Abu Dhabi.

In addition to Melbourne and Amsterdam, Etihad continues to operate special passenger flights from Abu Dhabi to several destinations including Seoul Incheon, Singapore, Manila, and Jakarta.

These special flights from Abu Dhabi will be available for booking through etihad.com, the mobile app, by calling the Etihad Airways contact center on +971 600 555 666 (UAE), or through a local or online travel agency. UAE nationals wishing to return back to the UAE should contact their local UAE embassy or consulate.
