Etihad Airways shall offer as prize a return, business-class flight for two people to Abu Dhabi, operated by Etihad Airways and valued at about $10,000 USD. The flight must be taken within a period of six months from the award of the prize.

All prizewinners shall accept the prize expressly by signing a receipt. The prize cannot be exchanged, compensated or substituted by a money payment. Refusal to accept the prize for any reason shall not give the right to indemnity or compensation of any kind. The prize is personal and not transferrable.  

Once the prizewinner is selected, Etihad Airways shall contact him or her directly and shall deliver the prize or give the instructions necessary for the prize-winner to redeem it. The prize-winner shall feely select his or her companion, although the companion should be of legal age. Etihad Airways reserves the right to request from the prize-winners the selected companion’s personal credentials to show that he or she fulfils the conditions.

Etihad Airways reserves the right to change the content of the prize in the event that it is not possible, for reasons unrelated to Etihad Airways, to deliver the prize specified in the present regulations. In that case, Etihad Airways shall ensure that the prize has the same characteristics as the advertised prize and/or that its monetary value is the same as, or higher than, the advertised prize. 

Etihad Airways shall not be liable for incidents that might occur during the enjoyment of the prize, such as (for illustrative and not limiting purposes) cancellations and/or delays that might interfere with enjoyment of the prize. If the flight is cancelled or cannot be taken as a result of the prize-winner’s own fault or negligence, the prize-winner shall automatically lose any right to the prize or to any compensation. 

It shall be an essential condition for receiving the prize that the prize-winner show proof of identity by presenting his or her National Identity Document or passport. 

Etihad Airways and the prize-winner shall agree the dates on which the flight must be taken within a period of six months from the award of the prize, with Etihad Airways having the final decision according to availability. The agreed flights and schedules cannot be cancelled or changed, and if they are, Etihad Airways shall not be liable for any costs.

The prizewinner and companion shall be subject to any conditions for departure from their country of origin and for entry into the destination country to enjoy the prize. They must bring all documentation and authorisation required for entry into the destination country. We strongly recommend that the prizewinner and companion take all due precautions that the destination requires, that they inform themselves about the country’s conditions prior to the flight, that they obtain their own travel insurance, that they ensure their passports are valid and that they carry with them all the documents needed to travel. Under no circumstances shall Etihad Airways assume any responsibility for the lack of insurance or required documentation. 

All taxes and fees related to the prize or extra costs, including those arising from delay or the prizewinner’s negligence, shall be borne by the prizewinner, except where the contrary is expressly indicated in the present regulations. The prizewinner shall also bear all costs of upgrades or extras which are not part of the prize as described under the present regulations. 


The draw shall take place on 28 June 2019.  and shall be conducted by computer software application in the offices of IMG Worldwide in New York.

One (1) winner shall be drawn from the pool of Participants. 

Once the draw has been held, Etihad Airways shall contact the winner by means of the data provided by the prizewinner on registering for the draw. The prizewinner shall have a period of two (2) weeks from the date of Etihad Airways’ notification in which to accept the prize and to provide the information required for the prize to be awarded. 

If the prizewinner does not make contact within the aforementioned period, or if the prizewinner cannot be contacted for reasons unrelated to Etihad Airways, or if the prize is rejected, he or she shall lose their entitlement to the prize.  In that case, Etihad Airways shall declare the prize void and shall dispose of it as it sees fit. 


Etihad Airways shall not be liable for damage, loss or for any other circumstance that the prizewinner and companion may suffer as a result of their enjoyment of the prize for reasons not directly attributable to Etihad Airways; nor shall it be liable for events of Force Majeure or acts or omissions of third parties who might interfere with enjoyment of the prize. Etihad Airways shall be exempt from all liability if any of these events occurs. 

Etihad Airways shall be exempt from all liability that could arise as a result of the Participants’  noncompliance or defective performance of the present Regulations.

In all events, Etihad Airways undertakes to publicise the modified Regulations on the following webpage nyfw.com/etihad-guest-getaway-rules  in such a way that all attendees/participants have access to the information. 

Etihad Airways reserves the right to exclude from the draw any Participant who carries out acts of fraud and/or contravenes the present Regulations and to withdraw the prize from the prizewinner in the event that it detects any activity that breaches the present Regulations.  Etihad Airways shall not be liable for such actions.

Etihad Airways shall process Participants’ personal data in order to administer the draw on the basis of the Participants’ consent  given by registering in the “Runway To Runway” programme.

Remember that if you wish to register in the “Runway To Runway” programme, you must accept its applicable privacy policy, accessible from the following link: https://www.etihad.com/en-au/legal/privacy-policy/

The Participants’ personal data will be provided to IMG Worldwide, LLC, as the promotion’s administrators, and with the sole purpose of carrying out the promotion. The data may also be provided to external service providers who provide services under our responsibility and in our name, such as marketing companies, prize-awarding agencies, computer services providers, legal professionals or other commercial advisors. Personal data may also be provided to public bodies as required by law. 

In addition, personal data may be transferred outside of the European Economic Area. Countries outside of the EEA do not always offer an equivalent level of protection and, in such circumstances, we will take specific measures to protect personal information. In particular, for transfers of personal data to countries outside of the EEA for which the European Commission has not made an adequacy decision, we shall use the contractual clauses of the type approved by the European Commission.    

Personal data shall be kept for the time needed to fulfil the purpose for which they were collected. Afterwards, Etihad Airways shall keep the personal data sufficiently blocked and only available to public bodies, justice officials and the courts, for the purposes of determining any liability that might arise from processing the data for the duration of such liability.   

Participants shall be able to revoke their consent or exercise their rights of access, rectification, suppression, opposition, limitation of processing and transferability of their data by sending an application in writing to the following postal address: Etihad Aviation Group, Attn. Data Protection Officer, PO Box 35566, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, or by sending an email to ethicscompliance@etihad.ae.

Participants have the right to lodge a complaint before the competent National Supervisory Authority. 


The nullity or invalidity of any clause under the present Regulations shall not affect the validity of the remaining clauses. In the event that a judge or court declares any clause void, the agreement shall continue in effect in all its remaining clauses, and the parties shall undertake to modify the content that has been rendered void by that decision. 


The present Regulations shall be governed by terms of this contract and, pursuant to these, by the laws of the United States, except where other compulsory rules are applicable. 

The Participants and Etihad Airways accept that any disputes that may arise from the interpretation or execution of these Regulations shall be subject, in all cases in which the applicable rule is not superseded by another, compulsory rule, to the jurisdiction of the Court and Tribunals of New York.
