UAE brings forward flight suspensions


The United Arab Emirates’ National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority along with the General Civil Aviation Authority have made the decision to bring forward the suspension of all inbound and outbound flights.

Etihad Airways will therefore suspend all departures from Abu Dhabi International Airport immediately.

This will initially last 14 days but is subject to change following decisions by the relevant authorities.

All Etihad Airways aircraft currently outside the UAE on March 24 will continue to operate to Abu Dhabi as planned, with the final arrival on March 25, carrying passengers permitted to enter the UAE under current government imposed restrictions.
