Etihad Guest is currently offering a 25% discount on award redemptions between Abu Dhabi and a number of cites – including London and Manchester.
The offer details are as follows:
- Book between 29 July – 10 August (23.59 GST) for travel 29 July – 30 October 2019
- Economy & Business Class included.
- Redemptions eligible for travel on Etihad Airways operated flights to:
- Abu Dhabi to/from Seoul
- Abu Dhabi to/from London
- Abu Dhabi to/from Paris
- Abu Dhabi to/from Dublin
- Abu Dhabi to/from Manchester
Availability looks good on the routes and dates I checked. For example, there are multiple flight options (and multiple seats) in Business Class every day from Abu Dhabi to London throughout October:
With the 25% discount, flights between London/Manchester and Abu Dhabi require 47,201 Etihad Miles in Business Class one way.
Taxes/fees from Abu Dhabi are about £150 one way, or £317-£343 from the UK one way.
For comparison, British Airways Executive Club charges 50,000-60,000 Avios + £374 one way in Business Class from London to Abu Dhabi.
Etihad has a very decent Business Class product and it’s always good to see award prices being discounted.
Etihad Guest is a 1:1 transfer partner from American Express Membership Rewards, so it’s relatively easy to get your hands on Etihad Miles. According to the terms, transfers can take up to 5 working days, but in my experience, it’s more like 48 hours in reality.
Are you tempted by the 25% award discount?
