Etihad Airways has added Melbourne and Amsterdam to its schedule of special repatriation flights.

The services from Abu Dhabi will help passengers stranded in the UAE due to COVID-19 restrictions, return home.

The airline will continue to repatriate UAE citizens on return sectors, where possible, and also carry fresh produce as belly-hold cargo.

Etihad began operating its repatriation flights earlier this week, starting off with Seoul Incheon and then to Singapore, Manila and Jakarta.

Here's the schedule (subject to change):

  • Seoul: 5, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17 and 19 April 2020
  • Singapore: 7, 11, 14, 18 and 21 April 2020 
  • Manila: 8, 11, 15, 17 and 18 April 2020 
  • Jakarta: 9 and 16 April 2020
  • Amsterdam: 11, 13, 15, 17, 18 and 20 April 2020
  • Melbourne: 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20 and 21 April 2020
