We’re pleased to announce that we are offering complimentary COVID-19 PCR testing with all Etihad Airways flights from Abu Dhabi between 1 January 2021 and 31 March 2021.

We’ve partnered with Life Dx to make it quick and easy for all guests to arrange their test across the UAE, giving them one less thing to think about before they travel.

Guests can book an appointment online for their sample to be collected from their home or hotel, or arrange a test at any Life Dx authorised sample collection facility in the UAE.

The process is simple:

·         Book a flight with Etihad Airways.

·         Depending on where guests are flying to, they can arrange a test between 48 and 96 hours ahead of their flight departure time in the UAE. Testing times can be found at

·         Book a test at a Life Dx facility, or book a home visit, call 600 551 636 or email

·         When guests receive their negative test result, they’re fit-to-fly and must print their results and present them at check-in.

* This offer excludes guests flying to China where they will be required to arrange a COVID-19 PCR test at an approved SEHA or G42 clinic listed on
