FAQs about flights from to

How long is the flight from Sydney Airport to Abu Dhabi Airport (AUH-Abu Dhabi Intl.)?

The journey from Sydney to Abu Dhabi takes about 15 hours and 14 minutes. We'll be blunt — you're in for a long one. Take a gripping novel and load up your laptop with movies to keep boredom at bay.

What airlines fly direct from Sydney Airport to Abu Dhabi Airport (AUH-Abu Dhabi Intl.)?

Etihad Airways is the only airline with nonstop services between Sydney, NSW Airport (SYD-Kingsford Smith Intl.) and Abu Dhabi Airport (AUH-Abu Dhabi Intl.), so book your ticket in advance. Holidays should be about chilling. And it doesn’t get much cruisier than a direct flight.

How many flights are there from Sydney Airport to Abu Dhabi Airport (AUH-Abu Dhabi Intl.)?

Around 4 flights cruise the skies daily between Sydney, NSW Airport (SYD-Kingsford Smith Intl.) and Abu Dhabi Airport (AUH-Abu Dhabi Intl.). So hop to it — it's time to book that seat and get chummy with Abu Dhabi.

Sydney Airport to Abu Dhabi Airport (AUH-Abu Dhabi Intl.) Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • A great way of beating jet lag after a marathon flight is to stay super hydrated. Drink heaps of water early on and throughout your journey. Avoid dehydrating and caffeinated beverages, such as coffee and alcohol.
  • Educate yourself about the layout of your aircraft online and decide on your seat location as soon as you can. Everyone has different priorities while flying — be it snoozing away, ploughing through a mountain-load of work or enjoying the simple pleasure of uninterrupted computer games. It's definitely worth taking a minute to find your ideal seat.
  • If you're on a very strict "no airline food" diet, then bring your own feast. Sandwiches, pastries, fruit and vegetables are all totally fine. However, it's a good idea to take heed of your destination country’s rules and regulations about what can and can’t be brought off the plane.
  • Prepare your "zone." Your seat will be your world for many an hour, so make it as comfortable as possible. Your phone, a gripping novel, some water and a travel pillow should be at your fingertips before you sit down.
  • Maybe one of the most helpful pieces of kit you can have on a lengthy flight is a comfy neck pillow. There are oodles of fantastic designs on the market, so choose something that works with your upright sleeping style.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • The aisles of a plane are certainly no fashion runway. Slip on comfortable layers and pack a sweater as it can get chilly on a long flight. Flat, enclosed shoes are also a clever idea.
  • Remaining immobile for a long time isn't great for your blood circulation. Get up and move around the plane as often as you can, do some leg stretching exercises while you're in your seat and consider wearing a pair of compression socks or tights.
Q: Can you take food on international flights?
  • Keeping a flow of enticing snacks on hand is a novel way to pass the time. Don't forget to include only foodstuffs which are well packed and abide by liquid and gel restrictions.

                                          5* facilities 5* location 4.5* Staff - they tried very hard but just don’t quite have that 5* finish (just being a little critical here) Would definitely stay again and highly recommend it
