Etihad Airways will temporarily suspend all flights to, from, and via Abu Dhabi from the end of Thursday.
The decision follows an earlier announcement from the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, and the General Civil Aviation Authority to suspend all inbound, outbound, and transit passenger flights in the UAE.
It added that flights to and from Abu Dhabi International Airport will stop at 11.59 pm (UAE local time) on Thursday and will last for an initial 14 days, subject to further directives by the relevant authorities. Cargo and emergency evacuation flights are exempt and will continue, the statement said.
Etihad said guests will be notified if their flight is cancelled. However, prior to proceeding to the airport, all guests should still check the status of their flights, using the Etihad Airways Flight Tracker at https://www.etihad.com/en-ae/manage/flight-tracker
