Kenyan Economy Class travellers on Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, will be offered one night’s FREE accomodation at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Abu Dhabi‘s Yas Island.
The offer, which is also valid to citizens of Pakistan and countries in the Middle East (excluding Qatar following recent global developments) and Africa stopping over in the national capital, runs until 15th September 2017.
“Etihad Airways is delighted to invite guests to experience Abu Dhabi for themselves. The capital of the United Arab Emirates has so much to offer all types of travellers, whether they are after culture, a beach break or sports and adventure,” said Mohammad Al Bulooki, Etihad Airways Executive Vice President Commercial. “This offer is for guests to make time to explore the many attractions Abu Dhabi has to offer during their stopover. The beautiful desert; a visit to the spectacular Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – among the world’s biggest; a tour of the many attractions on Yas Island, or sampling the emirate’s world class hotels and restaurants are all part of the Abu Dhabi experience.”
More than 4.4 million guest arrivals were recorded in Abu Dhabi in 2016, with the national airline having run such stopover programmes since 2011: Etihad has been offering guests a variety of services including airport meet & assist, transportation, accommodation, tours, and visa processing services.
On her part, Kenya has also recently increased the number of days a transit visa is valid for, from 3 to 4 days, in what the Government hopes will boost the appeal of the JKIA as a regional transportation and transit hub, and give tourists more time to discover the capital, Nairobi.
