Etihad Airways launches global sale

Etihad Airways, the national carrier of the United Arab Emirates, has launched a sale of up to 50 percent off selected routes as well as a prize draw offering giving customers a chance to win one of 100 experiences at their destination, the company said.

To encourage people to make the most of their holidays, Etihad Airways surveyed more than 1,400 US adults through YouGov, to ask what they would spend their money on when travelling.

The research has shown that just under two thirds (65 percent) of the people sampled, said they prefer to explore their destination in ventures beyond their accommodation while abroad, and almost half (49 percent) said they would spend a competition windfall on cultural tours or dining out.

Etihad Aviation Group (EAG) is a diversified global aviation and travel group comprising four business divisions: Etihad Airways, Etihad Engineering, Hala Group and Airline Equity Partners. From its Abu Dhabi base, Etihad Airways flies to, or has announced plans to serve, 117 passenger and cargo destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas. The airline has a fleet of 122 Airbus and Boeing aircraft, with 204 aircraft on firm order, including 71 Boeing 787s, 25 Boeing 777Xs, 62 Airbus A350s and 10 Airbus A380s.
