How good are these Etihad sale fares?

A good deal for flights to Europe is anything in the low $1,000 mark and it's rare to find fares that low with Etihad. Especially with so much variety in destinations. It's also safe to say, we haven't seen fares like these in over 2 years so if Europe is on your list, you might as well save some cash and fly with a full-service airline.

These fares at a glance

  • Great flexibility: Etihad's flexible fares allow unlimited changes until 31 May 2022 with no change fee. You'll just need to pay the difference if there's a change to your original fare and if you can't travel for any reason, you'll be eligible to get a flight credit for the future.
  • Great airline: Etihad is a 4-star full-service airline that has been awarded for its service, including at the recent Business Traveller Middle East Awards. You'll receive all the trimmings with your ticket, from checked bags to in-flight meals. Check out our reviews to see what it's like to fly with Etihad.
  • Great frequent flyer points: Etihad is partnered with Virgin Velocity which means you stand to earn 0.25 to 4 Velocity points per mile when you fly with it.
  • Great travel time: Many of these are direct flights or include a reasonable connection in Doha which means less stress in transit and more time at your destination.
