Etihad Airways Resumes Passenger Flights to Shanghai
As more countries relax the COVID-19 travel bans, Etihad Airways will resume passenger flights from Abu Dhabi to Shanghai, China with effect from 27 July, 2020.
The service will operate with an initial weekly flight using a two-class Boeing 777-300ER, departing Abu Dhabi on Mondays and leaving Shanghai on Tuesdays.
Those wishing to book are advised to visit www.etihad.com to view their options, and to remain informed on the appropriate entry regulations at their end destination.
Guests travelling on Etihad Airways flights to China will be required to show a negative COVID-19 PCR test result received within 72 hours prior to departure from Abu Dhabi, or from their departure airport if they are transferring from other cities via Abu Dhabi.
In the UAE, guests travelling to all Etihad Airways destinations, including Shanghai, can make use of a new home testing service introduced in collaboration with Mediclinic.
For a fee, UAE-based travellers can book a convenient COVID-19 PCR test at their home, or at a Mediclinic facility in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, or Dubai, prior to their travel.
The service is also convenient for those crossing the Abu Dhabi border from other emirates to reach Abu Dhabi International Airport.
