Abu Dhabi Destination Guide
Stopover and stay in Abu Dhabi
Conveniently located between the UK and the rest of the world, Abu Dhabi presents the perfect opportunity to stopover and stay a little longer in a surreal Emirati city. Also, by adding a stopover, you'll not only break up your flight but you'll also enjoy a unique stay complete with beaches, sunny weather, desert safaris, traditional monuments and modern skyscrapers. 2016 also marks the opening of the highly-anticipated Louvre Abu Dhabi, set to transform Saadiyat Island into the city's cultural hub later this year.
Abu Dhabi International Airport is a major hub for Etihad Airways, so many flights from the UK to destinations like Australia, New Zealand and Asia can be tailored to include a stopover in Abu Dhabi. And thanks to Etihad's close partnership with Virgin Australia, once you've had your fill of Abu Dhabi you can take to the skies to discover a strong network of flights all across the Land Down Under. Virgin Australia's Abu Dhabi services will recommence in July 2016.
