Etihad Airways suspends all passenger flights from March 26
UAE’s national airline Etihad Airways has announced that it will temporarily suspend all flights to, from, and via Abu Dhabi from March 26 for an initial period of 14 days. Cargo and emergency evacuation flights are exempt from this suspension and will continue.
This suspension has been made to help contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, and to protect the UAE, its nationals, residents and visitors, as well as all passengers connecting in Abu Dhabi with onward flights, the airline said in a statement.
The decision follows an earlier announcement from the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, and the General Civil Aviation Authority to suspend all inbound, outbound, and transit passenger flights in the UAE.
