Etihad to restart flights to Doha


Etihad Airways has announced plans to restart passenger services between Abu Dhabi and Doha.

The airline said flights to the Qatari capital will resume from February 15, subject to government approvals.

The service will run daily using an Airbus A320 and a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

Martin Drew, Senior Vice President Global Sales & Cargo, Etihad Aviation Group, said: "With ties between the UAE and Qatar restored, the restarting of passenger services between the two capitals will once again support the growth of trade and tourism between the two nations."

"Adding a new destination to Etihad’s network during the COVID-19 pandemic is another step towards the gradual expansion of normal scheduled services to more cities across the airline’s global network," he added.

Over the last few months, the airline has looked at different ways to improve processes, including the introduction of free PCR testing for guests departing the UAE and free COVID-19 insurance for all passengers globally.

Etihad is also the only airline in the world requiring all of its passengers to show a negative PCR test before departure, and on arrival in Abu Dhabi.
