Etihad, the national airline of the UAE, and SIXT, an international mobility service provider, have announced a new partnership to provide airport transfers to passengers globally.

Jamal Al Awadhi, Etihad Airways Vice President Product and Guest Experience, said: “It is important that our renowned Etihad experience exists across the entire customer journey. This new service enhancement provides a seamless transportation experience for our guests from their home to the airport and then upon arrival at their destination.”
