Etihad launches 'weekend breaks'.

Etihad Holidays, a division of UAE's national airline Etihad Airways, has unveiled a series of special weekend short breaks, which include many of its top-selling destinations.

The deals are designed for residents living in the UAE, with many cities located within four hours of Etihad's home-base of Abu Dhabi, in its popular destinations in countries such as Malaysia, Egypt, Jordan and Greece.

Short breaks start from Dh1,960 ($533.65) per person (based on two sharing a twin room) and include return Coral Economy flights from Abu Dhabi, two or three nights' accommodation, breakfast and all applicable taxes, a company statement said.

"We are seeing more and more couples and families looking for a short break to a destination that's close to the UAE," said Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways' chief commercial officer.

"With that in mind we have created this unique array of ten deals that includes the Mediterranean, the Levant, Middle East and the Far East. Again we have chosen a selection of our favourite hotels in these cities which we are sure will be a hit with customers," he added.

Special deals in the Mediterranean include two night stays at the three-star Dorian Inn in Athens, the three-star Topkapi Hotel in Istanbul and the four-star Palm Beach Hotel & Bungalows in Cyprus.

Deals to Thailand, one of Etihad's most popular destinations, include the four-star Imperial Queens Park in Bangkok.

Within the Middle East, breaks are on offer to Muscat in Oman, with stays at the Shangri-la, as well as the five-star Crowne Plaza in Amman.

In Lebanon, Etihad Holidays customers can stay at the Mozart Hotel, while the offers in Egypt include holidays at the five-star Maritim Jolie Vile resort in Alexandria and the four-star Pyramisa Suite Hotel in Cairo. -- TradeArabia News Service
