The airline has several options who want to do a stopover in its home base of Abu Dhabi on their way to nearly 100 of the destinations it serves.

Under Etihad’s two-for-one deal, travelers who choose to stay two nights in Abu Dhabi can get one night for free at hotels ranging from three to five stars.

Helsinki Airport, home to Finland’s flag carrier, is also known as one of the best-kept secrets when it comes to traveling through Europe and beyond. The airport touts itself as “the shortest and smoothest way to travel between Europe and Asia.” With a single terminal, transfer times are among the shortest in Europe. The airport is known for offering a great passenger experience, with services including a free comfortable traveler’s lounge, an art gallery, a book swap and an outdoor terrace. And Finnair wants to entice travelers to book a stopover — either coming in or going out — where stays can range from five hours to five days. Once the flight is booked, go over to the Finland Tours website, where you can sign up for pre-arranged tours or create your own, with prices ranging from $86 to $2058.
