  • CVV/CSC - Card Verification Value/Card Security Code is a security feature for credit or debit card transactions that provides increased protection for merchants against credit card fraud. It is the three or four-digit number on the back of a credit card that you are asked to enter during the process of making an online payment.
  • 3-D Secure - This is an added layer of security for online transactions that was introduced by Visa in the form of its Verified by Visa scheme. This requires users to register their credit cards with the service and then input a new security code in order to complete an online payment. This is not your ATM PIN number, but a password you would have set when registering for the scheme with your bank. MasterCard has developed a similar service called MasterCard SecureCode, while American Express has SafeKey in some markets and JCB has J/Secure.
  • SSL Certification - All transactions on Etihad Airways are processed in an SSL certification environment. This means that the data you enter when making a booking is encrypted and therefore rendered incomprehensible to anyone but the recipient (credit card or banking authority).
  • Fraud protection system – Etihad Airways website uses a cutting edge e-commerce payment system that utilises the most advanced fraud protection technologies available.

Debit Cards

We accept a number of debit cards for online bookings. To find out whether your debit card is accepted as a form of payment, try to make a booking on our website or ask your card-issuing bank. Alternatively, check the back of your debit card for a three-digit CVV or CSC number, which means it should be enabled for online transactions.
