Including Spanish, Greek and a new Portuguese route…

As much as we love our home here in the capital, we’ve always got one eye firmly on our next holiday. It’s important to treat yourself. And nothing screams ‘out of office’ in quite the same bold italics as a European escape. Brochure-perfect vistas, palm-ruffling breeze, cultural curiosities to explore, taste adventures to wrap your teeth around and all the romance of a brand new destination.

And our national carrier, Etihad Airlines understands this specific brand of wanderlust very well. Right on time, ahead of the big vacation rush, they’ve just announced their seasonal, summer routes to three destinations. While routes to Malaga and Mykonos are returning, there’s also a third new route, with the airline taking off for the cultural and culinary spoils of Lisbon for the first time.

Let’s here it for Lisbon

One of Western Europe’s oldest cities is having a renaissance, and has firmly established itself as a destination for culinary conneisurs. This summer, you’ll be able to enjoy direct access to Lisbon thanks to Etihad from July 2. Just in time for fun-filled summer holidays, the thrice weekly flight will operate on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays.

Greece lightning

From June 16, Etihad will return with two weekly flights to the charismatic Greek island of Mykonos. As much a hedonistic party spot with its celeb-filled beach clubs, dazzling entertainment and array of restaurant as it is a magnet for those seeking history and culture, it’s one of Europe’s most popular summer destinations. The flight will operate twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays.

Make for Malaga

On June 18, flights to the Spanish city of Malaga will resume for the summer. The bi-weekly flight on Wednesdays and Sundays provides a gateway to the Costa Del Sol, the province of Andalucia, an electrifying world of passion cuisine, pristine beaches, coastal adventures, Iberian soirees filled with out-out fuego, and unlimited portions of paella, live at the source.
