“As our network continues to grow, we know it’s important for you to have the freedom and flexibility to change your travel plans if you need to. So, we’ve removed all change fees for flights booked before 30 June 2020, for travel until 30 November 2020. Due to government restrictions across our network, you will be required to check in your cabin baggage before you fly. You will only be permitted to carry a personal item on board, such as a handbag, backpack or laptop bag. This can weigh up to 5kg.”

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Etihad’s lounges in Abu Dhabi are closed and will reopen as soon as the airline gets green signal from the authorities.

Travel between Abu Dhabi and other UAE emirates is currently restricted by the Abu Dhabi Government. If you are travelling between emirates to reach the airport, you will be required to present your booking confirmation or ticket if requested by officials. Only passengers booked on one of our special flights will be permitted to travel to the airport.

You will also be required to present proof of your booking if your journey time to or from the airport coincides with UAE curfew hours.

“If you booked your flight before 30 June to travel any time until 30 November 2020, you can change your flight for free. Cancel your trip and save it for later with Etihad Credit. We’ll reward you with up to US $400 and up to 5,000 Etihad Guest Miles, and you can travel any time before 31 October 2021. Or you can simply rebook your trip at a time that suits you – you can even pick a new destination anywhere on our network.”
