Daily flights

Starting 15th February,2021, Etihad Airways will recommence passenger flights from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, to Doha, Qatar. The service will operate daily with varying departure times over the week. The UAE carrier will be deploying both an Airbus A320 single-aisle aircraft and a widebody Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner for the route.

“With ties between the UAE and Qatar restored, the restarting of passenger services between the two capitals will once again support the growth of trade and tourism between the two nations. Adding a new destination to Etihad’s network during the COVID-19 pandemic is another step towards the gradual expansion of normal scheduled services to more cities across the airline’s global network.”
