Posted 14 July 2020 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways is now collaborating with Mediclinic Middle East, part of private hospital group, Mediclinic International, to offer its UAE-based travellers a COVID-19 PCR testing service at their home, or at a Mediclinic facility, prior to their travel.

The development is part of the airline’s Etihad Wellness sanitisation and safety programme, recently introduced to ensure the highest standards of hygiene are maintained at every stage of the customer journey. 

Dr. Nadia Bastaki, vice president medical Services, Etihad Airways, said: “Collaborating with world-class medical providers such as Mediclinic is vital to the services Etihad is providing its guests as part of the Etihad Wellness programme. We have a paramount responsibility to ensure those who are travelling from Abu Dhabi can do so assured in the knowledge that every effort is being made to care for them at every stage of their journey. Enabling home PCR testing will remove much unnecessary stress from the travel experience during this challenging period.

“These measures are also a reflection of those being taken across Abu Dhabi, which has been a world-leader in its response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, including vaccine research, mass testing, and community sanitisation programmes. Etihad will continue to work closely with the local authorities and partners to find innovative and convenient ways to protect our guests, and to promote secure and hygienic flying as the world slowly opens up to international travel.”
