With its first flights to Beijing less than two weeks away, Etihad Airways has launched a special 'buy one, get one half price' pearl business class offer to the Chinese capital.

"The pearl business class promotion is only available until the end of March and we anticipate considerable demand for this fantastic offer, so those interested need to book quickly to avoid disappointment."

Etihad will operate four flights a week from Abu Dhabi to Beijing from 30 March, which will be the eighth city in the Asia Pacific region of the airline's rapidly expanding global flight network.
