Etihad holidays launches new summer holiday programme

Etihad Holidays has launched its new world-wide holiday programme covering 68 destinations in two brochures: the first covering Europe, North America and Africa, and the other for Asia, the Middle East and Australia.

The two new outbound holiday programmes cover 25 countries in five continents and take into account Etihad Airways' expanded network and increased flight frequencies to key destinations in Europe. They also include a number of enhancements to assist travel agents and customers when selecting a holiday option, with a portfolio of "signature" and value hotels and a listing of the most popular packages and tours in all key destinations.

With the overall aim to be a comprehensive holiday and destination guide, the brochures also include a range of additional features, informative country-by-country overviews, a Do Not Miss' section for each destination, and car rental and insurance options.

Chris Hunter, Head of Etihad Holidays, said: "We offer a fantastic choice of holidays across five continents including our latest destination of South Korea and the many attractions of India. We can also create tailor-made holidays, even to destinations not featured in the brochures, so the options are limitless." One of the key highlights of the new brochure is Paris, home to the world famous Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysees and Disneyland Resort Paris.

Holidays to the French capital start from AED5,275 and include return economy airfares from Abu Dhabi and three nights' accommodation with breakfast at the Le Meridien Etoile. Family breaks to Disneyland Paris start from AED 5,385 including return flights and three nights' accommodation with breakfast at the Disney's Hotel Santa Fe and up to two children can stay and play free at Disneyland for bookings made before April 12th.

Another popular destination is the resort Island of Cyprus where packages start from AED 2,260 at the Palm Beach Hotel and Bungalows in Larnaca for three nights' accommodation with breakfast and return economy flights from Abu Dhabi.
