Etihad Airways to resume flights to Istanbul


Etihad Airways has announced it will resume passenger flights from Abu Dhabi to Istanbul from January 17 next year.

The service will operate with an initial twice-weekly flight using a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, featuring Business and Economy cabins.

"As Etihad gradually returns more destinations to its global network, the airline is looking forward to the resumption of scheduled services to Istanbul," said Martin Drew, Senior Vice President Sales and Cargo, Etihad Aviation Group. 

Passengers travelling on Etihad Airways flights will be required to show a negative COVID-19 PCR test result received within 96 hours prior to departure from Abu Dhabi, or from their departure airport if they are transferring from other cities via Abu Dhabi.
