Etihad Airways has launched charter and special flight services. These services are customisable and both business and leisure guests can choose from a variety of flight operations. This includes a dedicated passenger service, cargo-only flight, or both a passenger and cargo package. Etihad will use its current fleet of aircraft to operate the special flights.
In 2020 Etihad flew over 500 charters
Alex Featherstone, Vice President Network Planning & Alliances, Etihad Airways, said, “While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the commercial aviation industry, charter flights provide a convenient alternative to travel, providing customers with the flexibility to choose the departure time, destination and routing.”
In 2020, Etihad Airways flew over 500 charters in 2020 including passenger, government and humanitarian flights. As part of the national aid programme, over 3.8 million tonnes of cargo was transported for the government of Abu Dhabi using charter services.
