Choose from Over 15 Accommodations For Free When You Book a Flight with this Airline

Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways has announced that it will be offering free stopover to passengers flying through the UAE capital under its global promotion launch initiative, as shared from their announcement.

The promotion offers two free nights hotel accommodation in Abu Dhabi for all passengers booking flights to and from all Etihad destinations via Abu Dhabi.

Guests can select from 15 hotels located across the city which includes the five-star Intercontinental Abu Dhabi and Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi, as well as the Courtyard by Marriott WTC, Crowne Plaza and Radisson Blu, among others.

The promotion is available by booking online through or via authorized travel agents from April 10 to June 15, 2019, for flights between April 21 and July 15, 2019.

As part of the online booking requirements, Etihad guests should select a multi-city flight and will be directed to the stopover booking page once the booking has been confirmed. Guests can then select a hotel package option with one of the 15 hotel partners involved in this promotion.

The capital city is a great place for solo travellers and couples in search of unique and memorable travel experiences, as well as groups or families looking to make exceptional memories amid unique attractions in the background, making it the perfect destination for a holiday within a holiday.

If you’re still wondering what the promotion is all about, the advantage of stopovers goes beyond creating two holiday experiences out of one and the physical need to cope or deal with jetlag. Global travellers can definitely see the benefit from adjusting to the time zones for their journey, after arriving at their final destinations, and then get on with their business feeling more refreshed and ennerized for the “actual” travel experience.
