Etihad Destinations in The Middle East

Book your flight on Etihad Airways and travel to the Middle East. The Middle East is considered by many to be the cradle of modern civilization, home to myriad ancient languages and cultures whose imprints are still visible today. From the millennia-old ruins throughout the Fertile Crescent to the ultra-modern cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, a journey to the Middle East is a journey through time.

Top Five Things to do in the Middle East

  • Fly into Abu Dhabi, where you will find year-round sunshine, pristine beaches, spectacular sand dunes and a pulsating cosmopolitan lifestyle. Abu Dhabi is the largest of the seven Emirates that make up the UAE and the city of the same name is the captivating capital of the country.
  • See the Pyramids! Egypt’s famous pyramids are some of the most iconic structures in the world. Although the pyramids at Giza are probably the best known, Egypt is home to over 130 others.
  • Go shopping in Dubai, which is known throughout the region as a center for luxury shopping malls. Fly to Dubai in January or February for the Dubai Shopping Festival.
  • See the famous cedar trees of Lebanon. Growing up to 130 feet tall and 80 feet in diameter, these trees frequently referenced in ancient texts can live over 2,000 years.
  • Go shopping in the Mutrah Souq in Oman. Although housed under modern, timber roofing, this marketplace still has the character of a traditional, Arab market.
