Travel Update: Nepal Earthquake

Etihad Airways has resumed normal operations to Kathmandu following the earthquake in Nepal. The airline is operating a normal schedule today (27 April) with flights EY290 and EY292 en route to Tribhuvan Airport.

An additional flight was added today, EY292A, to take those passengers who were unable to reach their destination yesterday, but the aircraft has been unable to land due to airfield congestion. It is diverting to Lucknow in India before returning to Abu Dhabi. We will accommodate those guests tomorrow on another flight.

Etihad Airways is continuing to encourage any passengers who do not need to urgently travel to Kathmandu to rebook on an alternate date or seek a refund for their tickets. All passengers booked to travel to Kathmandu during the coming days are being notified of this option. 

Passenger and crew safety remain our priority and our immediate thoughts are with the country and its people during a challenging time.
