Etihad Airways began operating flights on the Abu Dhabi - Vienna route
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has launched the inaugural flight to Vienna, the City of Music. The new service will be operated twice a week between Abu Dhabi and the capital of Austria.
Known for its Baroque architecture, culture and rich musical heritage, Vienna is a five-hour, 50-minute flight from Abu Dhabi. Travelers from the United Arab Emirates who have been completely vaccinated and who have been vaccinated for at least 14 days are exempt from restrictions on both their destination and return.

The new service was conveniently scheduled to arrive in Vienna early in the morning to offer travelers between the UAE and Austria an ideal weekend getaway. Austria is currently open to Austrian citizens and residents, residents of the Schengen Member States and Switzerland, business travelers and students.
The pilots and cabin crew of the flight to Vienna were completely vaccinated against COVID-19. Etihad was the world's first airline to vaccinate 100% cabin crews and pilots who worked in the pandemic and the first airline to ask passengers to take a negative PCR test before departure.
Like any Etihad flight, the Vienna service will have well-trained ambassadors on board as part of a comprehensive program of initiatives designed to ensure the well-being of passengers at every stage of the journey.
