Etihad Airways has delayed its restart date from 16th May to 16th June 2020, when they will plan to resume regular passenger flights from the UAE. Etihad’s flight resumption will depend on the UAE government lifting current travel restrictions.
Flights in and out of the UAE are currently suspended, but the Abu Dhabi-based airline is working with the government and regulators to restart operations.
A spokesperson for Etihad told The National that their restart date will be subject to the UAE government’s approval:
“To minimise any potential disruption or discomfort to customers, only flexible and refundable fares will be offered after April 29, 2020, for travel between June 16 and August 31, 2020,”
an Etihad spokesperson told The National.
