Etihad Airways implements temporary changes to its route network

Posted 16 March 2020 · Add Comment

Due to the spread of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus and its continuing impact on air travel services globally, Etihad Airways continues to follow UAE and international government and regulatory authority directives and has implemented a series of consolidated network changes.


This is also being carried out for the safety and convenience of its customers and staff, and to minimise operational disruption during this period. The following services from Abu Dhabi have been temporarily adjusted:


Milan (MXP)

All flights suspended until 30 April.


Rome (FCO)

EY85/86 suspended until 30 April.

EY83/84 suspended until 30 June.


Beirut (BEY)

All flights suspended from 16 March until 31 March.


Istanbul (IST)

All flights suspended from 16 March until 31 March.


Casablanca (CMN) and Rabat (RBA)

All flights suspended from 16 March until 31 March.


Amman (AMM)

All flights suspended from 17 March until 31 March.


Madrid (MAD) and Barcelona (BCN)

All flights suspended from 17 March until 31 March.


Jakarta (CGK)

The following previously announced network changes remain in place:

All flights suspended from 16 March until 31 March.


Kuwait (KWI)

All flights suspended until 31 March.

Shanghai (PVG)

All flights suspended until 28 March.


Chengdu (CTU)

All flights suspended until further notice.


Nagoya (NGO)

All flights suspended until 30 June.


Future changes to the route network may occur due to government directives in key markets. Etihad Airways is working closely with regulatory authorities in the UAE and overseas and is continuing to monitor this situation closely.


For passengers impacted by flight cancellations, procedures are in place for fare refunds or for flight changes when services resume.


Etihad Airways is urging guests whose flights are impacted by COVID-19 travel restrictions to refrain from calling the airline’s customer service lines unless their flights are scheduled within the next 48 hours. Contact Centres are currently experiencing significant congestion and long waits. The immediate priority is to assist those guests with imminent travel.
