Travellers planning a summer getaway can take advantage of cut-price fares to several destinations as Etihad and Emirates are running flight promotions over Eid.

The national airline of the UAE has launched a summer sale with fares to select destinations reduced by 50 per cent.

Starting Thursday, the Etihad sale runs until next Wednesday. Return fares in Economy class start from Dhs995 to five locations including Casablanca, Nairobi, Athens, Bahrain and Colombo.

Etihad is also offering lower fares to the Seychelles, with rates from Dh1,895 and to Cairo for just more than Dh1,000.

Fly to Colombo from Dh995 with Etihad as part of the airline’s fare sale. Sri Lanka is welcoming travellers under its “bio bubble” arrangement where travellers stay in approved hotels and visit monitored landmarks.

Those seeking colder climes can visit Moscow from Dh1,495 or Zurich with fares from Dh1,895. Stateside, Etihad has economy fares for flights from Abu Dhabi to New York from Dh3,495. These promotional prices give travellers a wide scope when it comes to when to travel as they are valid until November 20, 2021.

UAE residents and citizens opting to visit Morocco, Switzerland or Russia can enjoy quarantine-free travel on both sides of their trip, as these countries all feature on the Abu Dhabi Green List.

Etihad passengers booking flights could also be in with the chance of winning 50 times their flight fare in Etihad Credit, as part of the airline’s Year of the Fiftieth programme, which celebrates the UAE turning 50 this year.
