Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates - Monday, October 27th 2014 [ME NewsWire]
Abu Dhabi visitors and residents will now be able to experience two unique Seawings seaplane flights – the Abu Dhabi Snapshot Tour and the Dubai Seaplane Adventure. Additionally, the Middle East’s only seaplane tour operator has partnered with Etihad Airways to offer Etihad Guest Members the chance to earn Etihad Guest Miles as they takeoff from water on a Seawings seaplane from the exciting locations of Yas Island and Emirates Palace.
The Seawings seaplane offers a thrilling water takeoff and landing and scenic views of the city and coastline below. “Seawings guests taking off from Abu Dhabi will be amazed at how this majestic city in the desert has transformed into an amazing modern landscape of iconic structures. Geographically, the Emirate is a visual treat. A little known fact is that Abu Dhabi has nearly 200 islands along its coast, all of which make for terrific scenery from the sky,” states Stuart Wheeler, CEO.
The Abu Dhabi Snapshot Tour presents a breathtaking aerial view of the Capital’s sights with a thrilling water takeoff and landing. The Seawings seaplane will take off from either Emirates Palace or Yas Island and will offer guests aerial views of the Yas Marina Circuit, Mina Zayed Port, Sheikh Zayed Bridge, Corniche, Mangroves and more, before landing back at the departure location.
“The mangroves in Abu Dhabi are rarely seen, even by residents and tourists exploring the city on ground. But, from the sky, the mangroves are a fascinating sight, considering that they are typically found in tropical areas and we are in the middle of the desert,” explains Wheeler.
The Dubai Seaplane Adventure delivers the excitement of a water takeoff and landing and flies guests from Yas Island in Abu Dhabi to the JA Jebel Ali Beach Hotel in Dubai. Guests will enjoy a scenic view of the UAE coastline on a once-in-a-lifetime seaplane flight. They will also receive a complimentary Dubai shopping voucher. Guests can even choose to upgrade to the ‘Full Experience’ and enjoy a second Seaplane Adventure from Jebel Ali to the historic Dubai Creek.
Etihad Guest members will earn 400 Etihad Guest Miles on the Abu Dhabi Snapshot Tour. The Full Experience package of the Dubai Seaplane Adventure, offers guests 600 Miles. These miles can be redeemed at Etihad’s online shops, with non-airline partners and while booking Etihad flights.
