Etihad has also launched a sale on fares to Seychelles, with return fares starting from Dhs1,795 in economy, for travel in October and November 2021.

Martin Drew, Etihad’s senior vice president – Sales and Cargo, said: “Seychelles is a one-of-a-kind destination, and with vaccinated travellers in the UAE being able to fly there and back without quarantine, it is the perfect destination for a short getaway or a longer family holiday.”
