Etihad Airways celebrates Manchester City’s Premier League win with sale

Etihad Airways is slashing up to 40% off flights from London to many global destinations to celebrate Manchester City winning the Premier League title.

The airline has sponsored the football club’s shirts since 2009 and struck a £400 million sponsorship deal with Etihad Airways in 2011.

The flights deal sees return tickets to Abu Dhabi offered from £300 return, with Singapore at £465 and Melbourne at £646.

Bookings must be made by tomorrow (Wednesday) for travel until December 10.

Passengers travelling from the UK to Abu Dhabi can connect to onward flights to more than 100 destinations, with flights departing three times a day from Heathrow.

The UAE carrier is also expanding a codeshare deal with Egyptair for travel from May 2.

This will see Etihad Airways place its ‘EY’ code on the Egyptian flag carrier’s flights to a number of African destinations including Ndjamena in Chad, Nairobi in Kenya, Khartoum in Sudan, Entebbe in Uganda, Johannesburg in South Africa, and on flights to Nigeria, Eritrea and Tanzania, subject to government approvals, via the Star Alliance carrier’s Cairo hub.

Etihad Airways chief executive Peter Baumgartner said: “Egyptair is one of the oldest and most experienced airlines in the region with a major presence in cities across the African continent.

“The forging of closer codeshare ties between our two airlines means unprecedented access to many new gateways for Etihad’s customers while bolstering our services to markets we already serve, such as Kenya and Tanzania, by connecting easily through Cairo onto Egyptair’s African network.”
