United Arab Emirates – Milan
Linate Airport will be closed from 27 July 2019 until 26 October 2019 for
runway maintenance. Domestic and international operations will be redirected to
Milan Malpensa Airport, increasing aircraft and passenger congestion.
This airport closure will not directly impact any Etihad
Airways flights, however guests flying into, or out of Milan Malpensa airport will
experience an increase in road traffic, longer wait times at check in, security
and immigration points, and possible flight delays.
We strongly encourage guests to plan ahead when traveling
over this period. Arrive early to the airport, complete pre-boarding processes
as soon as possible and take note of check in and gate closure times as ground
staff will not be able to accommodate late guests.
Check in will close strictly 60 minutes before departure for
Economy guests, and 45 minutes for Business. Gates will close 20 minutes before
departure for all guests.

Italy on +39 0223 331 300 for guests, and +39 0223 331 188 for trade.
