Dear Trade Partner,

We have some important information for all guests travelling to Shanghai.

Due to new restrictions in China:


·         Etihad flights to Shanghai will operate with a technical stop in Incheon before continuing to Shanghai. Guests will remain on board in Incheon, there is no need to leave the aircraft.


·         All guests must take both a PCR and IGM test at a G42 Biogenix lab in Abu Dhabi. These tests must not be taken any earlier than 11pm on Friday or no later than 7am on Sunday.


·         Guests must also take a Rapid LAMP test within six hours of their flight at a G42 Biogenix lab in Abu Dhabi. 


These changes are effective immediately. For more information and the latest requirements for travelling to Shanghai, please visit

We look forward to welcoming you on board.
