Etihad Airways is
offering return flights from London to Abu Dhabi for just £247, for flights
booked before March 9 and taken by the end of May. These are perfect for
business travellers as they do not include restrictions on Saturday night
officially starts on March 1, although when Business Traveller checked today we
found flights in early May (departing Sunday May 3 and returning Thursday May
7) were already bookable for £253. Indeed the difference in price between Etihad
and BA on these dates was staggering – Etihad came in at £253, with BA charging
£1,394, mainly because the flights do not include a Saturday night stay.
The sale also
covers routes to Mumbai (£275), Sydney (£505) and Melbourne (£533), with the
fares guaranteed at these prices on all available economy seats throughout the
promotional period. The sale runs from March 1 to March 9, and all outbound
travel must be completed by May 28 and inbound by May 31.
members of the carrier’s Etihad Guest programme will earn full miles on these
promotional fares, as well as a bonus of 2,500 miles for all online booking
made before April 1.
