Published September 6th, 2009 - 08:51 GMT

Etihad Holidays, a division of Etihad Airways, has launched its Eid programme which contains deals at more than 30 hotels in destinations in Africa, Europe, the Far East and Middle East offering accommodation, return Etihad Airways flights and much more.

The deals, which include breaks to Cape Town from Dhs 4,510, Bangkok from Dhs 5,720 and Amman from Dhs 4,410, are packed with bonus offers such as complimentary extra nights, room upgrades, breakfast and airport transfers.

Featured in the Eid packages are “hot deals” which offer exceptional value for money for breaks at five star luxury hotels in Thailand, Malaysia and South Africa.

“Hot deals” in the Eid programme include the Millennium Resort Patong in Phuket from
Dhs 6,885 and the Hotel Le Vendome in Cape Town from Dhs 6850. Prices include all applicable taxes and surcharges.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways’ chief commercial officer, said: “Many people are keen to go on a short break for Eid but aren’t sure where to go, so the new Etihad Holidays programme is ideal because there is so much to choose from, whether short haul to Muscat or the Dead sea, or further a field to the beaches of Thailand or a city break in England.”

Eid deals to Thailand, one of Etihad’s most popular destinations, include the four star Imperial Queens Park in Bangkok from Dhs 5,720 for a three night stay and the five star Grand Sukhumvit Hotel from Dhs 6,065.

Also on offer is three nights at the Novotel Phuket from Dhs 6,725. In addition to return flights from Abu Dhabi to Bangkok, Phuket holiday deals also include return flights to the island of Phuket with Etihad’s codeshare partner Bangkok Airways.

Elsewhere in the Far East, Eid breaks are on offer to hotels in Kuala Lumpur as well as beach holidays in Penang and Langkawi, Malaysia.

Etihad Airways launched flights to Cyprus in June 2009 and since then it has been very popular with holidaymakers from the UAE and across the Middle East. Etihad customers can spend two nights at the luxurious Elysium hotel, a five star deluxe hotel, from Dhs 4,195 with extra nights starting from Dhs 610 per person per night.

Also available in Cyprus are Eid packages to the Mediterranean Beach Hotel in Limassol from Dhs 3,465 and Le Meridien Limassol Spa and Resort from Dhs 3,905. All hotels in Cyprus offer complimentary breakfast and airport transfers.

Within the Middle East, Eid breaks are on offer to Muscat in Oman, with prices starting from
Dhs 3,155 for two nights at the Shangri La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa, as well as hotels in Amman and the Dead Sea in Jordan.

Eid Holidays are also available in European favourites London, Paris and Munich with three nights at the four star Hilton Munich Park from Dhs 4,775, and additional nights starting from Dhs 535.
