Etihad launches flights to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Zanzibar

ABU DHABI - Etihad Airways today announced three new quarantine-free destinations for the coming winter season. This November, the airline will begin flying to Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa, and the Indian Ocean island of Zanzibar. The new additions to Etihad’s network mean the UAE’s national carrier will be operating to 70 destinations across 47 countries.

Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer, Etihad, said, "We’re proud to be launching Etihad’s newest destinations in Africa this winter and we’re confident our guests will find they are all incredible places to visit.

The new service to Zanzibar will operate from 26th November. The route will also offer easy connectivity for guests travelling from Europe and North America and transiting through Abu Dhabi. The scheduled flights will operate on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays on the airline’s Airbus A320 aircraft offering 8 seats in Business and 150 seats in Economy.

Etihad will operate flights on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays via an Airbus A320 jet with economy and business class cabins. It is a short six-hour flight from Abu Dhabi to Abeid Amani Karume International Airport on Unguja Island.

Zanzibar is also open for travel. The archipelago welcomes tourists who have had a negative PCR test taken within 96 hours of arrival. Those coming from countries with the highest number of Covid-19 cases may need to undergo a rapid test on arrival, at a cost of $25. All arriving passengers must also fill in a surveillance form before arriving in Zanzibar – this can be found here.
