Etihad opens premium check-in at Abu Dhabi

10th Nov 2006

Premium Zone Guests of Etihad Airways can now check in at an exclusive new facility when travelling from Abu Dhabi International Airport.The new facility, provides Diamond and Pearl Zone Guests with the latest flight information via TV screens, placed above each counter, comfortable seating and a fast-tracking through immigration.

“The new premium check-in is another addition to our pledge to provide our guests with the highest level of service and hospitality, whether on the ground or in the air,” said Geert W. Boven, Etihad’s VP commercial.

Etihad’s innovative ground services, including a personal chauffeur-drive service from anywhere in the UAE to Abu Dhabi Airport, have received considerable praise from the airline’s premium guests.

“Our Diamond and Pearl Zone Guests can now step out of their personal chauffer-driven limousine, and immediately enter the calm and private surroundings of the premium zone check-in. We will continue to develop these special personal touches that set us apart from the competition,” added Mr Boven.

After check-in and immigration, Diamond and Pearl Zone Guests can relax in Etihad’s Premium Lounge, which offers a wide selection of hot and cold buffet dishes and beverages. The lounge is equipped with laptop connections, high-speed internet access, fax and phone facilities, and guests can also use the nearby gym and shower facilities for a small charge.


Currently Etihad also offers premium Guests flying to the airline’s UK destinations, London Heathrow, London Gatwick and Manchester, a complimentary chauffer service within 100 miles of the airport. Plans are underway to roll this service out across other destinations on Etihad’s expanding global network.
