Etihad launches its 65th destination with first flight to Vienna

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, on July 18 launched its inaugural flight to Vienna, the City of Music, the first of a new twice-weekly service between Abu Dhabi and the Austrian capital.

Flight EY147 departed Abu Dhabi International Airport at 7.30am and is expected to land in Vienna Airport at approximately 11.20am today, where it will be welcomed by a traditional water cannon salute.

The new service will be operated on Thursdays and Sundays using a state-of-the-art Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, offering 28 seats in Business and 262 seats in Economy, entertainment systems, in-seat power, and in-flight Wi-Fi connectivity.

Travelers from the UAE who have received all vaccination doses for full immunization at least 14 days before arrival, including Sinopharm and Pfizer, currently do not have to quarantine in Austria or Abu Dhabi, where Austria is on the green list.

All of the pilots and cabin crew on the flight to Vienna were vaccinated against COVID-19. Etihad was the first airline in the world to have 100% of all operating flight crew vaccinated against the coronavirus and the first to require 100% of passengers to present a negative PCR test before departure.

    I am a frequent traveler, my personal travel experience says that not all conditions are good to travel by air sometimes conditions caused by nature, and in some cases, by our issues, it brings about change or retraction of the booked Air ticket. I generally really like to go with Lufthansa Airlines since it’s straightforward the Lufthansa flight cancellation policy offer substantially more adaptability. I’m very thankful to the team of Airlinespolicy.com, who guide me about Lufthansa Airlines and its all policy in detail.
