2. Etihad flights to/from the UAE
Etihad Airways is the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, and operates out of Abu Dhabi International Airport. It has a fleet of more than 120 aircraft and flies to more than 110 airports around the world. Popular long-haul routes include Abu Dhabi to Bangkok, Tokyo and London. Planning a trip to Tokyo? Check out our guide to the best things to do in Tokyo.
Recent changes to the Etihad Airways schedule include new flights to Barcelona.
3. Etihad Guest frequent flyer program
It’s always worth signing up for airline loyalty programs, and especially important if you live in the UAE and like to travel. If your company pays for a flight home every year, chances are that’s a lot of points/miles right there!
There are three main ways to earn Etihad Guest miles: flying on an Etihad Airways flight, spending in certain venues and stores, and using an Etihad Guest-affiliated credit card. There are also two types of miles to earn; tier miles, which contribute to your Etihad Guest tier and the higher the tier the more perks such as lounge access you’ll get, and regular miles which can be redeemed against a ticket or upgrade (the latter is usually the best value for money and Etihad First Class is seriously indulgent!).
