Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, started operations in November 2003 and has been one of the world’s fastest growing airlines. Etihad’s pioneering spirit and traditions of hospitality drawn from its home, Abu Dhabi, have come together to create signature experiences in the air. The airline’s aim is to provide you with choice, comfort and warm service, no matter what kind of travel experience you are looking for.

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 and Manchester and five departures a week from Edinburgh, there's never been a better time to fly to Australia in Etihad's premium cabins.
