Etihad Holidays launches dedicated Australia brochure

Published February 13th, 2007 - 02:52 GMT

Etihad Holidays has launched an exciting new range of Australian holidays to complement the airline’s start-up of non-stop flights from Abu Dhabi to Sydney from March 26.

With prices starting at just AED 2,960* for a three-night stay in Sydney or seven-day fly drive package, the holidays feature the very best Australia has to offer.  Holidaymakers also have a wide range of pre-bookable options including airport limousine transfers and scenic helicopter flights over Sydney for AED 595.  The range of accommodation varies from 3-star hotels to deluxe self-catering apartments.

UAE visitors will be spoilt for choice from vibrant city breaks in Sydney and the cultural capital, Melbourne, to the delights of the Hunter Valley, the scenic wilderness of the Blue Mountains and the subtropical beaches and great shopping along Queensland’s Gold Coast.  Families can choose fun days out to theme parks including the famous Melbourne Royal Botanical Gardens and the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane.

Nick Wood, general manager of Etihad Holidays, said: “We have carefully built our new programme around the needs of travellers from this region and anticipate a great deal of interest from UAE customers keen to travel in style from Abu Dhabi.”

“Australia is proving an increasingly attractive destination for visitors from the UAE, as we have seen with the advance-bookings for our flights.  Given the destination’s popularity we recommend that travellers book their holidays well in advance.  Discounts are available for booking at least 30 days prior to departure.”

Mr Wood added: “Etihad’s commitment is to provide great value holidays and the Australian Holiday brochure caters for all budgets and holiday styles, including added value options where children stay for free. “

“Also, obtaining a visa to Australia from Abu Dhabi has never been easier for UAE nationals, who can apply online for multiple entry visas valid for two years.”
