Etihad Airways to launch new luxury apartments and suites on their aircraft
Etihad Airways, the leading air carrier in Abu Dhabi, has announced that it will be installing a three-room suite on the upper deck of its latest Airbus A380 aircraft. The suite will feature a living room, double bedroom and en-suite shower room, plus a dedicated Savoy-trained butler, and it is designed for two guests travelling together in First Class.
The national airline of Abu Dhabi has launched the apartment-style accommodation as part of its revamped first-class offerings and the suite will feature a living room, a double bedroom, and an en-suite shower room.
The “Residence” will also have its own dedicated Savoy-trained butler who will be on hand to assist guests throughout their flight.
The 125-square-feet suite has been designed for two guests travelling together and fares will cost from $20,000 one-way.
The airline will also have nine first class “apartments” on the upper deck that will have changing rooms and showers for its first class passengers.
First Class and Business Class will both be positioned on the upper deck of the A380 planes and they will be divided by a lounge area or lobby. The Business Class area will have 70 “studios” to make journeys more comfortable for passengers.
Etihad will receive the first of its ten A380 aircraft this autumn, the first of which will offer flights on the London route from December.
December will also mark the launch of the first 787s that will offer 27 business class “studios”.
Etihad Airways was established in 2003 and is now the flag carrier of the United Arab Emirates, offering flights for business trips and holidays in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and many countries across the Middle East.
The airline operates flights between Abu Dhabi and more than 70 cities in 46 countries all over the globe and the carrier strives to provide an exceptional service for its passengers.
As well as providing international flights, Etihad Airways has also been the major sponsor for the Formula One Abu Dhabi Grand Prix since its first race in 2009.
