Etihad Airways launches flights to Johannesburg, Cape Town and Zanzibar

Etihad Airways announced today the start of flights to three new destinations as part of its schedule for the winter season.

During November, the company will travel to Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa, and Zanzibar, the jewel of the Indian Ocean. The new addition will contribute to raising the number of the union’s destinations to 70 destinations across 47 countries.

“We are delighted to be launching Etihad’s newest destination to Africa this winter,” said Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Aviation Group.

He added: “Johannesburg is one of the important destinations on our network, providing vital connectivity to and from most of South Africa. Cape Town, the southern port city, will give travel enthusiasts an exceptional time.”

Etihad will start operating its services to Johannesburg, South Africa’s largest city, from November 25. Meanwhile, its flights to Cape Town will launch the gorgeous coastal destination. The two services will operate three times a week, on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, on Etihad’s flagship Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, and will be arranged in a two-class system to carry 28 studio seats in Business Class, 78 seats in Economy Class and 184 seats in Economy Class.

The new Etihad service to Zanzibar will also be launched on November 26. The destination will also provide seamless connectivity for guests from Europe and North America to travel through Abu Dhabi.
Flights are operated on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays by an Airbus A320, arranged in a two-class system, with 8 seats in Business Class and 150 seats in Economy Class.

Thanks to the Etihad Health and Safety Program, and the sterilization procedures that the carrier applies to all its incoming, outgoing and transiting flights to Abu Dhabi, guests can travel easily and smoothly.
The program includes free health insurance against “Covid 19” for all travelers, and it will continue until March 31, 2022.

The company’s innovative “Mutamad to Travel” application also helps facilitate the process of verifying the required documents before traveling. With the app, travelers can check that their documents are complete before arriving at the airport
