File picture

The UAE's national carrier, Etihad Airways, has launched discounted tickets for students.

The deal will make it easier for people to travel between university and home.

Students who book before November 30 2020, for travel by September 30 2021, will save up to 10 per cent on Economy tickets and five per cent on Business class seats.

Family members can also benefit from the same discount provided their tickets are booked under the same reservation and they travel with the student.

Etihad said travellers who book using this promotion will have an increased baggage allowance of up to 40kg in Economy and up to 50kg in Business.

They can bring one additional checked bag if travelling to or from the USA or Canada.

One free date change is also permitted up to 96 hours prior to travel.
