As with the earlier Etihad repatriation flights, these will all be one-way trips. Entry into the UAE is still restricted to UAE nationals only, and almost every other country has similar strict admissions criteria.
If you want to grab a seat on one of Etihad’s repatriation flights, you’ll need to visit etihad.com, jump onto the Etihad mobile app, or speak with the contact centre on (600) 555666.
But there are a limited number of seats, so expect them to sell quickly.
Emirates Airlines has also launched a selection of repatriation flights from Dubai, with destinations including London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris, Zurich and Brussels.
To help with maintain a steady food supply in the UAE, Etihad Airways will be using as much of its cargo space as possible to ferry supplies back to Abu Dhabi on the return legs.
