Etihad Airways will resume passenger flights to Shanghai from July 27.

It will initially operate a weekly service from Abu Dhabi using a Boeing 777-300ER, featuring Business and Economy cabins.

Robin Kamark, Etihad Aviation Group Chief Commercial Officer, said: “Our priority now is to build the network back up on markets that have opened up and to provide a secure and hygienic flying environment across the entire guest journey.

"The restarting of passenger services between Abu Dhabi and Shanghai will cater to the large demand from business travellers in the UAE, China, and other economies in the Middle East and Africa."

The airline has added that all its guests heading to China will have to show a negative COVID-19 PCR test result received within 72 hours before departing from Abu Dhabi, or from their departure airport if they are transferring from other cities via Abu Dhabi.

In the UAE, passengers travelling to all Etihad Airways destinations, including Shanghai, can make use of a new home testing service introduced in collaboration with Mediclinic for a fee.

The service is also available for those entering the capital from other emirates to reach Abu Dhabi International Airport.
