Etihad expects a boost in demand as Abu Dhabi scraps quarantine
The second flag carrier of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Etihad Airways, anticipates a surge in air travel demand. The outlook comes after the UAE government has announced the plan to scrap quarantine for fully vaccinated passengers arriving in Abu Dhabi.
“The news is perfectly timed to begin welcoming the world back to Abu Dhabi. We expect a huge surge in demand from tourists and visiting friends and relatives from around the world. This will also give UAE residents greater flexibility and peace of mind when traveling globally,” the CEO of Etihad Tony Douglas was quoted in a statement as saying on September 2, 2021.
Fully vaccinated passengers will be allowed to enter Abu Dhabi without a need to self-isolate. However, whether vaccinated or not, all arriving travelers will be asked to take a PCR test within 48 hours of departure.
“Etihad is currently operating to 65 passenger destinations with one of the world’s youngest and most sustainable fleets. We look forward to welcoming our guests to Abu Dhabi with Etihad to enjoy this world-class destination – an emirate and capital city we’re so proud to call our home,” Douglas added.
