Etihad Airways

Eager to stimulate stopovers in the UAE capital city, Etihad Airways passengers travelling in economy class from the Middle East, Africa and Pakistan are now able to enjoy one night’s free accommodation at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Abu Dhabi Yas Island until September 15, 2017.

Commenting on the new initiative was executive vice president commercial, Etihad Airways, Mohammad Al Bulooki: “Etihad Airways is delighted to invite guests to experience Abu Dhabi for themselves. The capital of the UAE has so much to offer all types of travellers, whether they are after culture, a beach break or sports and adventure.

“As the national airline, Etihad Airways is an integral part of this incredible city and those who transit through Abu Dhabi should be encouraged by us to experience it. This offer is for guests to make time to explore the many attractions Abu Dhabi has to offer during their stopover. The beautiful desert; a visit to the spectacular Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – among the world’s biggest; a tour of the many attractions on Yas Island; or sampling the emirate’s world class hotels and restaurants are all part of the Abu Dhabi experience.”
