Etihad has launched a short sale, valid for bookings made by 20th January. You can travel for any period up to 10th October 2023.

As normally happens with the Middle Eastern airlines – however illogical this may seem – the cheapest fares are to destinations beyond their hub and not to the hub itself.

The headline sale fare between London and Abu Dhabi is £2,699, which is definitely pushing the boundaries of what you’d call a ‘sale’.

The Seychelles, on the other hand, is just £1,999 return from London via Abu Dhabi.

Dublin to Zanzibar is just €1,799, if you don’t mind starting your trip in Ireland, even though the sale fare from the UK is far higher.

You can have a look at the offers, which also includes economy deals, on the Etihad website here.
