The initiative aims to bring more business and leisure travellers to the UAE capital over the summer months. The “Abu Dhabi: sunshine guaranteed or your next holiday for free” campaign will apply to every booking that consists of a flight and hotel-inclusive package between May and September. Visitors who experience more than 5mm of rainfall during their stay in Abu Dhabi will receive another holiday free of charge.
Etihad Holidays is launching the campaign alongside the opening of its new UK office. In the UK, Etihad Holidays will operate under its own Air Travel Organiser’s Licence (ATOL) and as a member of ABTA, the UK’s leading travel association.
In 2015, more than 230,000 passengers travelled from the UK to Abu Dhabi, a 14 percent rise on figures for 2014 – according to recent statistics released by the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority.
Etihad Airways currently serves three UK airports, with three flights per day from London Heathrow, two flights per day from Manchester Airport and five flights per week from the Scottish capital, Edinburgh.
In addition to purchasing holidays in the UAE, UK guests will be able to choose from more than 300 packages for destinations in China, Malaysia, Maldives, Oman, Seychelles, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam.
Etihad Holidays, launched in 2004, offers dynamically packaged holidays at exceptional rates with many of the world’s leading hotel brands and provides an extensive range of additional services including its stopover programme, tours, excursions, family attractions, safaris, and car hire, all of which use the Etihad Airways and partner airline flight network.
