Etihad Airways has announced a 49-hour National Day sale where customers can book a ticket with a deposit of AED 49 and pay nothing until 21 days before their trip.

In a statement, the national carrier said, "Travellers can jet off any time before 30 September 2021 for less, and lay back and relax at a luxury resort, explore ancient architecture or spend the weekend discovering a new city."

The sale starts on November 11 and continues until 10:00 am on November 13.

Fares from Abu Dhabi to Beirut start from just AED 1,249, Athens from AED 2,449 and Maldives from AED 3,049.

The sale extends across all of Etihad’s cabins, with return Business fares starting from AED 5,349 out of Abu Dhabi to Cairo.

With Etihad Holidays, travellers can book three-night package deals including Etihad Airways’ flights and accommodation in a four or five-star hotel in Cairo, Athens and Maldives.

Those wanting to stay closer to home can choose from an enticing range of staycation deals across the UAE.

One night offers are available from as little as AED 149, including breakfast, at a wide range of hotels across Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

Complimentary date or destination changes are permitted, the airline added.

The UAE will be celebrating the 49th National Day on December 2.

It is an opportunity to recognise 49 years of unity between the seven emirates and to embrace the nation's spirit and values.
