Flights were suspended on Tuesday due to the on-going conflict between Israel and Hamas.

In a statement sent to ARN News, the airline said they are "continuing to monitor the situation and maintains close contact with the authorities and security intelligence providers on an hour-by-hour basis".

They added that passengers wishing to update or change their travel arrangements can contact the Etihad Airways Contact Centre or their travel agent.

Etihad said that the safety of guests and crew is their number one priority.

Dubai-based carriers Emirates and FlyDubai are running as scheduled.
