Unlock a Complimentary Hotel Stay in Abu Dhabi When You Fly with This Airline

Etihad Airways introduces a stopover program offering free hotel stays in Abu Dhabi for round-trip passengers.

Travelers booking directly on etihad.com can add up to two complimentary hotel nights during the booking process.

The CEO anticipates attracting over 100,000 visitors to Abu Dhabi through this program, promoting the city's attractions.

Participants in the stopover can select from 3- and 4-star hotels, but breakfast and extras are not included.

 A small fee of $9.99 applies for the stopover, with certain blackout dates during holidays and busy periods.

Etihad's boarding pass doubles as an Abu Dhabi Pass, providing discounts on attractions like the Louvre Abu Dhabi.

Similar to other airlines, Etihad aims to encourage tourism by offering free stopovers, alongside perks like discounted attractions.

Etihad's expansion includes new flight routes and reintroducing luxurious amenities like the Airbus A380's "The Residence" suite.

Partnerships with airlines like JetBlue enhance loyalty programs, broadening travel opportunities for passengers.

This initiative aligns with Etihad's strategy to boost tourism and enhance customer experiences through innovative offerings.
