Under the agreement, which is part of the Abu Dhabi Government Employee Travel Program (ADGETP), Etihad will offer IGG a range of benefits including bonus miles, additional excess baggage allowance, priority services and exclusive travel discounts. Additionally IGG has agreed to make Etihad Airways its preferred airline for all air travel and cargo requirements. Both parties also agreed to look at possible future joint initiatives.

This agreement affirms Etihad’s efforts to offer unprecedented benefits and travel services to government and semi government employees across the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.”
