Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, has said that it will resume operations at London Heathrow’s Terminal 4 from June 22, 2022.
Etihad is returning to Terminal 4 following a temporary halt at Terminals 2 and 3 during the pandemic.
Etihad said that it will increase its current four daily flights from London Heathrow to five daily flights effective from July to September 2022. Also from July, Etihad will increase its services into Dublin to offer a daily flight, and continue to operate daily to and from Manchester.
With the return of Etihad to Terminal 4, transport connections including the London Underground and Heathrow Express will also reopen. In addition, Etihad Lounges will also re-open for Etihad’s First and Business class guests, as well as Etihad Guest Platinum and Gold members. The VIP room features separate lounge and dining areas, as well as a children’s playroom. Tickets can be book at www.etihad.com
