Etihad offers discounts for UAE flyers

Etihad Airways has unveiled a major new promotion which will allow UAE citizens to fly to top destinations across Europe, the Middle East and Africa from as little as AED530.

For this price, UAE nationals could book a return seat to the popular Indian destinations of Cochin, Kozhikode, Chennai and Trivandrum, while AED1,310 will take them London, Paris, Frankfurt or Munich and back again.

Meanwhile, those with an eye on Africa could book a special discounted two-way fare to Johannesburg, Khartoum and Casablanca for AED1,210.

"We are anticipating great interest, especially for the Irish destinations for the period around St Patrick's Day," said Geert Boven, Etihad Airways' executive vice-president of sales and services.

UAE residents will be able to get to the Emerald Isle for as little as AED1,900.

Mr Boven has also recently iterated the importance of Italy in Etihad's service network during a visit from the Mediterranean country's tourism minister.
