Flying Etihad to USA

21 June 2016

Travelling to USA requires a lot of preparation. You're required to provide passport information when you book a flight to the US. At times, you get interrogated heavily at the immigration before they let you get through. Consider flying Etihad to make your journey a bit more convenient.

US Preclearance facility

We can use the US Preclearance facility to clear US Customs & Border Protection formalities before boarding when you fly to any of Etihad's US destinations from Abu Dhabi Airport. So we can land in the US as a domestic passenger with shorter transit hours for any US domestic flights onwards and luggage can be all the way checked though to the final destination.

Automated Passport Control (APC) kiosks

Abu Dhabi International Airport is the only airport in the world equipped with APC kiosks for flights departing to the US. These kiosks provide an automated way to pass through Customs & Border Protection. Passengers from the US, Canada and those eligible under the Visa Waiver Programme can make use of these kiosks to enjoy shorter waiting time as well as faster processing when passing thought Abu Dhabi Airport.
