Economy passengers: Check-in opens four hours before scheduled departures and closes one hour before departure.

Premium passengers: Check-in closes 45 minutes before departure.

Travelers flying to the US: Check-in closes two hours before departure. Additionally, passengers can utilize the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facility at Abu Dhabi International Airport for pre-clearance of US immigration before entering the country.

Hajj travelers: Check in at one of Etihad’s dedicated pilgrim counters, which will provide complimentary refreshments and dates.

To ensure a smooth journey during the busy summer season, Etihad airways  has shared some tips for travelers. This also includes arriving at the airport earlier than usual and verifying departure terminals or flight times.
