Etihad Airways resumes Melbourne flights

Etihad Airways has resumed flights to Melbourne this week and is offering services across five days of the week

Flights will depart Abu Dhabi on 12.40am on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and on Friday and Saturday where there will be two flights available. All flights will arrive at Tullamarine Airport.

Passengers are required to show a negative PCR test before departure and on arrival in Abu Dhabi.

The news comes after the carrier launched its regular flight service between Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv.

Before the launch, Israel was added to Abu Dhabi’s ‘green list’, giving quarantine-free travel for visitors arriving in Abu Dhabi.

At the time, Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “Today is a hugely significant moment in Etihad’s history, as we operate our first scheduled commercial flight into Tel Aviv.

“Last year, we witnessed the UAE and Israel make history when signing the Abraham Accords, and we are tremendously excited about the opportunities this poses to Etihad, and our home Abu Dhabi.”
