Etihad Airways will resume passenger flights to London and Manchester from Abu Dhabi from 8 August following the United Arab Emirates being added to the UK ‘Amber’ List.
Unvaccinated guests travelling from the UAE will be required to have a negative PCR test 72 hours before departure and to undergo 10 days home quarantine, as well as follow up Covid-19 tests on day two and day eight. Fully vaccinated guests who had their vaccine administered in the UK, US or Europe are exempt from quarantine and the day eight test.
The airline’s three daily flights to London Heathrow have been scheduled to provide guests with a choice of conveniently timed departures and arrivals, and all 28 weekly services between Abu Dhabi and the UK will be operated using state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
Those wishing to book are advised to visit www.etihad.com to view their options, and to remain informed of the appropriate entry regulations at their end destination, the airline said.
The airline continues to follow UAE and international government, regulatory and health authority directives, and is playing its part in helping to limit the spread of Covid-19, it said.
