Gulf carrier Etihad Airways surprises us with a great sale for economy class tickets. With departure from Rome and Milan, you can reach many attractive destinations like Kuala Lumpur or Tokyo for less than €450 – to Bangkok even for less than €350. While you need to change planes in Abu Dhabi in each direction, this price includes meals, drink, a checked bag up to 32 kg and supreme board service.
Due to Etihad’s generous rebooking policies, you are able to change your travel date and destinations without further cost.
Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.
A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.
Our calendar displays all available dates for trips of up to 28 days. You can either book directly on Etihad’s website or save roughly €25 by booking through an OTA
Etihad advertises the following destinations and prices with departure from Milan or Rome:
Etihad Airways mainly uses new Boeing 787 aircraft on all of these flights, with a 3-3-3 seating pattern in economy class.
Search & Book
According to Etihad.com, this offer is valid until January 23, 2022 for flights before August 31, 2022. Varying minimum stays apply, depending on your origin and destination. Availability is good for most city pairs we have checked.
You can use Google Flights to find available flight dates. Since Etihad doesn’t serve all routes daily, you might use some filters to avoid long layovers in Abu Dhabi (instructions). Booking these flights on etihad.com is the only way to make sure you can benefit from their rebooking policy, so you might want to consider that, even if booking through our Travel-Dealz flight search is cheaper.

But the option makes this offer much more attractive.
