Helping citizens to fly home from the UAE, Etihad Airways has added additional destinations to its list of repatriation flights.

Just last week, Etihad Airways announced that outbound flights to select destinations would operate from April 5 onwards. Further to this, the airline carrier has now added Amsterdam and Melbourne to its approved outbound flights from the UAE.

The following repatriation flights have been approved by the UAE Government:

  • Seoul: 8, 10, 12, 15, 17 and 19 April, 2020
  • Singapore: 11, 14, 18 and 21 April, 2020

Following the suspension of flights in and out of the UAE, Etihad continues to work closely with authorities to get these types of operations in motion. The airline says that it aims is to increase the number of flights, subject to approval from other foreign governments.
