DUBAI – Abu Dhabi carrier Etihad Airways announced it will gradually resume passenger flights to and from Manila, Islamabad and 56 other destinations through July and August after the easing of international travel restrictions.
The announcement on Tuesday (July 7) came as the UAE welcomed its first international tourists after lifting travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 crisis.
According to Etihad, it plans to resume flights to 58 destinations in Asia, North America and Australia subject to the lifting of international restrictions in these areas.
“We are delighted to announce the gradual expansion of normal scheduled services to more cities across our global network,” said Tony Douglas, group CEO at Etihad Aviation Group. “The easing of restrictions on travel to and from the UAE is an important first step and a great development for Abu Dhabi”.
