New Covid strain: Etihad Airways updates travel rules for UK passengers
Children under 12 and those with severe and moderate disabilities are, however, exempt from Covid-19 PCR testing
All guests flying Etihad from the UK must present a negative PCR test within 72 hours validity of their flight departure time, according to the latest update from Etihad Airways.
The decision will come into effect December 24, in line with an announcement by the National Crisis and Disaster Management Authority.
All PCR tests must be conducted at a government accredited medical facility, added the airline, noting that suggested facilities can be found at etihad.com.
Guests will be required to show evidence of the date and time the test was taken at check-in, by presenting their appointment confirmation.
Children under 12 and those with severe and moderate disabilities are, however, exempt from Covid-19 PCR testing.
“Etihad is the only airline in the world requiring 100% of its passengers to show a negative PCR test before travelling and again on arrival into Abu Dhabi, ensuring peace of mind for all on board,” said a statement released by the company.
