Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – From 12 May 2021,
travellers flying from Abu Dhabi with Etihad Airways, the national
airline of the United Arab Emirates, will be able to validate their
Covid-19 travel documents before arriving at the airport. Guests can
arrive at the airport with confidence and with peace of mind, knowing
they have met all essential requirements before their flight.
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.
Mohammad Al Bulooki, Chief Operating Officer, Etihad Aviation Group
said: “As Etihad continuously looks for innovative solutions to simplify
the travel experience, Verified to Fly removes any guess work from the
equation and makes check-in faster. Guests have total peace of mind
knowing that when they arrive at the airport, they have already met all
Covid travel requirements”.
To use the Verified to Fly service, guests can sign-up by visiting Manage my Booking
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 guest will be
asked to resubmit or check their documents. Guests can also check their
Verified to Fly status at any time by visiting Manage my Booking.
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.
