Etihad Airways is the national airline of the United Arab Emirates and is based out of Abu Dhabi. Launching in 2003, Etihad quickly established itself as one of the world’s premier airlines, winning the World Travel Award for The World’s Leading New Airline in 2004. Since then, the airline has received over 170 awards for its outstanding service and facilities. The airline’s main strengths lie within its focus on onboard comfort and luxury.

So who better to travel in long-haul luxury to Australia with? As one of our preferred partners, we can't think of any other airline we'd rather go Down Under with. And with daily departures from London, there's never been a better time to fly to Australia in Etihad's premium cabins.
