The U.A.E. flag carrier has added rescue flights to Amsterdam and Melbourne, in light of the developing COVID-19 situation globally. Meanwhile, the airline continues to operate special passenger flights from Abu Dhabi to destinations including Seoul-Incheon, Singapore, Manila, and Jakarta.

These flights are meant to bring home passengers who have been stranded in the U.A.E. due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. In addition, the flights help support the U.A.E. Food Security Program by utilizing the belly-hold capacity of the passenger aircraft for cargo.

These special flights can be booked via the airline’s website, its mobile app, by calling the Etihad Airways Contact Centre on 971/600-555-666 (U.A.E), or through a local or online travel agency.
