ABU DHABI 24 January 2021: Quarantine requirements have been lifted for passengers arriving in Abu Dhabi from 18 destinations worldwide – including China, according to Etihad Airways.

Welcoming the announcement of the reopening of Abu Dhabi to tourists, Tony Douglas, Group CEO Etihad Aviation Group, said the emirate is at the forefront of the global response to Covid-19 and is one of the safest places in the world to visit.

The list of destinations are:

Etihad says arrivals must take a Covid-19 PCR test on day 6 and day 12 of arrival into Abu Dhabi. If you’re part of the National Vaccination Programme you’ll only need to take a Covid-19 PCR test on day 6.

In a letter to customers, Douglas described 2020 as a year that “has been incredibly difficult for everyone, and I am so grateful for your support over the past 12 months”.

He said the airline is feeling optimistic about 2021. “We’re flying to up to 60 worldwide destinations and counting, and we continue to focus on providing safe and positive travel experiences for our guests.

“At the same time, we’re working hard to build a new Etihad. We’re committed to becoming more efficient, more sustainable and more innovative. And we will continue to grow the Etihad Guest programme, to make every day more rewarding for you as a member,” Douglas added.
