UAE – Etihad has announced temporary restrictions on the number of passengers flying between Abu Dhabi and Sydney, the carrier said Monday.
“Following regulations being updated by the Australian authorities, a further limit has been placed on the number of passengers per flight allowed to disembark at Sydney International Airport,” an Etihad spokesperson told Khaleej Times in a statement.
The statement added, “As a result, Etihad Airways is temporarily restricting the number of passengers carried between Abu Dhabi and Sydney from January 15 until February 15, 2021.”
