Guests using the app get a 10% discount while members of the Etihad Guest loyalty program will receive 250 bonus miles for every booking made through the mobile app before 30 May 2016. By partnering with Abu Dhabi Airports Company, guests can navigate their way through the Abu Dhabi international airport through indoor maps, a first in the Middle East.

While booking their tickets, passengers can view multiple fare and upgrade choices, followed by paying with credit card by simply scanning it. Later, the boarding passes can be viewed from the app or downloaded to the iOS wallet. The app also incorporates high resolution enhanced seating maps and a detailed layout of the cabin and their chosen seat.
