Etihad Airways has temporarily suspended passenger services between Abu Dhabi and Johannesburg from November 30 until further notice. The Abu Dabi-based airline said the move is as a precautionary measure in response to the spread of the newly identified variant of Covid-19 in South Africa.

“Etihad is working closely with impacted guests to notify them of the changes to their itineraries,” the airline said, adding that guests who have purchased tickets through a travel agent are advised to contact the agency from which they purchased their ticket for assistance.
