Etihad Airways has expanded its business with the launch of charter and special flight services.

The service is fully customisable; and business and leisure guests can choose from a variety of flight options including dedicated passenger service, cargo-only flight or a combined passenger and cargo package.

Over 3.8 million tonnes of cargo has been transported for the government of Abu Dhabi as part of the national aid program using charter services. This year, Etihad has flown over 500 charters including passenger, government and humanitarian flights.

“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,” says Alex Featherstone, vice president network planning and alliances, Etihad Airways.
