Etihad Airways will offer flights from Melbourne to London, with transit via Abu Dhabi, from May 15.

In postings on its Twitter account, the airway also said it will offer London to Melbourne flights via Abu Dhabi from May 21.

Etihad said it had implemented an “an extensive sanitisation and safety programme” on flights and at airports, and recommended face masks for travellers.

“On board, we’ll make sure you are seated with as much space as possible between every guest, and we’ll offer our food and drinks service in line with important COVID-19 guidelines,” a statement on Etihad’s website said.

Passengers will remain on board at Abu Dhabi.

Additional safety and security measures will be in place at the destination and passengers will be required to self-quarantine, the airline said.
