Special flights to key Indian cities
Etihad Airways will operate a series of special passenger flights from Abu Dhabi to Bengaluru, Delhi, and Mumbai. The flights can be booked 24/7 through Hala Travel Management, Etihad’s travel management arm, by calling +971 2 511 7777, or via email at [email protected] Flights must be booked at least 24 hours in advance. The mandatory documentation required will be collected and processed by Hala travel consultants.Travellers leaving Abu Dhabi to India are required to show a negative Covid-19 PCR test result from a government accredited medical facility, received within 96 hours prior to departure. This negative result certificate will exempt the traveller from mandatory quarantine on arrival in India. Children under the age of 12 and people with mild to severe disabilities are currently exempt from this PCR test requirement, however rules may differ from state to state and travellers are advised to check before flying. To help facilitate this process, Etihad Airways is collaborating with Mediclinic Middle East to offer departing travellers the option of convenient PCR testing, for a fee, at their home, or at Mediclinic facilities in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, and Dubai prior to their travel.
