On behalf of Etihad Holidays, the Czech airline Smartwings has been connecting Leipzig/Halle Airport with Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, twice a week since October 14, 2023.
The charter route is served by medium-haul Boeing 737-Max-8 jets. The package holidays can be booked via the Etihad Holidays website at www.etihadholidays.de and at travel agencies. Offers include 15-day round trips from 999 euros per person with stops in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah. Transfers and excursions are included in the price.
