Etihad Airways has expanded its business with the launch of customizable business and leisure charters and special flight services.

Flight options include dedicated passenger service, cargo only flights or a combined passenger and cargo package.

“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,”

said Alex Featherstone, Vice President Network Planning & Alliances, Etihad Airways.

This year, Etihad has flown more than 500 charters including passenger, government and humanitarian flights. More than 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.

Etihad Wellness, the airline’s health and safety program, includes specially trained Wellness Ambassadors who have been introduced by the airline to provide essential travel health information and care on the ground and on every flight.

As part of the Etihad Wellness program, global COVID-19 insurance cover is included for all passengers traveling with Etihad.
