Booking information

Etihad Airways offers guaranteed STPC (stopovers paid by Etihad) for all eligible Premium guests transiting in Abu Dhabi. Economy guests on certain routes are entitled to STPC.

STPC applies only for guests with a transit time of between 8 and 24 hours, following their first scheduled connecting Etihad flight.

Make your STPC request at your EY office or contact us for assistance.


You can combine up to four destinations in one booking. 

A group is a party of 10 or more (excluding infants) travelling together on the same outbound and return flights, on the same dates.

Economy Space is a great option for guests who want to stretch out and have extra legroom. Some are in the exit row and are subject to safety and eligibility requirements.

We strongly recommend you book early, as Economy Space seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Etihad Fare Choices offer you the ability to tailor your guest’s journey according to their needs.

Fare choices offer guests flexibility with dates, baggage allowance, how many Etihad Guest miles they will earn and other benefits such as priority check-in, chauffeur service and upgrade eligibility.

Sometimes plans change or an emergency arises. We would like to give our guests the flexibility to modify and customise their bookings according to their needs.

All reservations, modifications and cancellations are subject to terms and conditions, The Customer Care Policy, General Conditions of Carriage and applicable taxes, fees and charges (including but not limited to fare rules of the ticket and Guest Service Fee).

We understand that in some instances you may need to update the name on your guest’s booking. In the event that you make a mistake or their name has changed due to personal reasons, we will update it for you on a case by case basis. The fee is US$ 100 (or AUD 150 if you purchased your ticket in Australia).
