SPOTLIGHT ON Etihad Airways

Our friends at Etihad Airways dropped by recently to update us on numerous developments on the ground and in the air.

Here are some of our favourites.


Did you know that if you fly to the US from Abu Dhabi on Etihad, you can pre-clear US immigration before you board your flight, all from the comfort of Terminal 3 in Abu Dhabi Airport?

When you arrive in the US, simply pick up your bags and go.


On Etihad’s A380, First and Business Class paseengers can relax in The Lobby, a lounge area located between the First and Business cabins.

With a leather sofa, table and a TV screen, The Lobby is designed for relaxing and socialising.


For a limited time, Etihad customers can explore Abu Dhabi on the way to their next destination with a FREE two-night stopover!

Etihad Airways and award-winning lounge provider No1 Lounges has introduced The House lounges in Sydney and Melbourne.

Complimentary entry is offered to Etihad Airways Business and First Class passengers, and to those travelling in The Residence. Gold and Platinum members of the airline’s Etihad Guest frequent flyer program and Business Class and First Class travellers ticketed on codeshare partner services operated by Etihad Airways will also eligible for access.

Sarah Bush, Director of The Travel Authority Group, hit the skies again recently, flying long-haul with Etihad Airways, and she visited The House in Sydney.

Here’s what she thought of it.


Did you know that Etihad’s First & Business Class passengers enjoy chauffeured transfer services between Abu Dhabi Airport to and from anywhere in the UAE operated by the airline’s fleet of Mercedes Benz cars.
