Etihad rolls out travel discounts and support schemes for frontline workers


Etihad Airways has partnered with the Frontline Heroes Office to honour the efforts of the UAE's frontline workers.

An exclusive benefits scheme has been unveiled by the airline that includes a 15 per cent discount on flights and preferential rates for Etihad Holidays’ travel packages.

Guests will also be welcomed at a dedicated check-in area at Abu Dhabi International Airport, and offered a 15 kg complimentary excess baggage allowance to make travelling easier.

"It’s clear we have a huge debt of gratitude to the frontline heroes who have worked so tirelessly and selflessly to keep our country going. Those individuals have my utmost respect and it is a great honour that Etihad can give back to this community," said Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Aviation Group.

Since its inception in July 2020, more than 80,000 professionals have been registered with the Frontline Heroes Office, including health sector staff, cleaning and sanitisation workers as well as security and emergency personnel.

Once registered, frontline heroes should visit to complete the registration process with Etihad and begin enjoying the benefits.

Professor Maha Barakat, Director General of the Frontline Heroes Office, said: "We look forward to strengthening this ongoing partnership and continuing our commitment to source exemplary institutions like Etihad Airways to build an ecosystem of organisations to aid frontline heroes."
