(28 June 2021) Etihad Airways has confirmed that it will launch flights to Vienna, Austria, next month.
The service will operate twice weekly with Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, starting 18 July 2021.
Austria is currently open to nationals and residents of Austria, residents of Schengen-member states and Switzerland, business travellers and students.
To simplify the travel experience and provide additional peace of mind, Etihad recently launched Verified to Fly, allowing guests to validate their COVID19 travel documents before arriving at the airport.
Travellers who use Verified to Fly can enjoy fast track check-in at the airport.
To use the Verified to Fly service, travellers simply need to sign-up by visiting Manage my Booking and from there they will receive further information on how to submit their documents.
Travellers can also check-in for their Etihad flight from the comfort of their own home up to seven hours before their flight. Passengers can check-in their bags, choose their seat and collect their boarding pass and luggage tags from their home in Abu Dhabi.
Once at Abu Dhabi International Airport, all non-transit passengers who have used the home check-in service can skip the queues bag-free.
