ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – 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, 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.”
