(Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates December 18, 2021) Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, invites holiday makers, business travellers and returning UAE residents to travel to Dubai and the UAE’s Northern Emirates via Abu Dhabi International Airport. The authorities recently reopened Visa on Arrival for eligible passport holders, making Abu Dhabi an ideal gateway to the UAE’s seven emirates.

Travellers to Dubai and the Northern Emirates - Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah, Ajman and Umm Al Quwain – should follow the quarantine procedures of the respective emirate. In Dubai, travellers only need to quarantine until receiving a negative COVID-19 test result, which is taken on arrival at Abu Dhabi International Airport and usually received the same day.

On arrival at Abu Dhabi Airport, passengers are only permitted to travel to another emirate by Etihad Chauffeur, Etihad Express Coach or Airport Taxi. Etihad’s complimentary Express Coach service can be pre-booked by all passengers and will reach Dubai in just over one hour. First and Business class guests can enjoy Etihad’s complimentary chauffeur service which will transfer you to any emirate. Etihad’s transfer service vehicles are deep-cleaned and sanitised after every trip for total peace of mind. 

Martin Drew, Senior Vice President Sales & Cargo, Etihad Aviation Group, (pictured) said: “Etihad is an ideal option for guests wishing to travel to Dubai and the Northern Emirates to enjoy some of the UAE’s famous winter sun and incredible cultural and leisure highlights. Etihad is the only airline in the world to require 100% of its passengers to show a negative PCR test before travelling, and then retesting everyone on arrival. This means that flying with Etihad is flying in the safest possible way.” 

UAE residents are reminded to visit before they travel to submit their passport number and Emirates ID number. They will receive instant verification of their UAE entry status in line with their residence visa validity. 

Travellers should always check the latest travel regulations before they fly. 

Etihad Wellness is the airline’s health and hygiene programme, exclusively designed to ensure guests travel with absolute peace of mind. As part of the programme, all passengers travelling with Etihad receive complimentary COVID-19 insurance. Etihad’s Wellness Ambassadors will be on hand to provide essential travel health information and care on the ground and on every flight. 

Etihad’s wellness portal provides detailed information on the stringent measures being taken by the airline to provide a safe travel experience. More information available at
