Skip the queue through Etihad's 'Verified to Fly' initiative

Supplied

From May 12, travellers flying from Abu Dhabi with Etihad Airways will be able to validate their COVID-19 travel documents before arriving at the airport.

With the formalities out of the way, verified travellers can enjoy fast track check-in at the airport by going to the dedicated Verified to Fly desk for a quicker and smoother experience.

To use the service, guests can sign-up through the Manage my Booking section on the airline's website and will receive further information on how to submit their documents.

Once the submission has been checked by the Verified to Fly team, guests will receive a ‘success’ email if their documents meet government requirements.

If requirements are missing or not met, the passenger will be asked to resubmit or check their documents.

Verified to Fly will be available for all guests departing Abu Dhabi from 12 May 2021 (excluding China) and for flights departing Amman, Beirut, Dhaka and Manila shortly thereafter.

Future developments are in progress to introduce the service on other destinations.

Mohammad Al Bulooki, Chief Operating Officer, Etihad Aviation Group said: "Guests have total peace of mind knowing that when they arrive at the airport, they have already met all Covid travel requirements."
