Etihad Airways has enhanced its premium service offering at Abu Dhabi International Airport with the opening of a new Arrivals Lounge.
The luxurious facility is the first Arrivals Lounge to be operated by Etihad Airways in the world, offering a stylish and modern environment for the exclusive use of the airline’s First and Business Class guests.
It also boasts a convenient location, immediately after customs.
Highlights include a dedicated area to freshen-up before leaving the airport, with ten revitalising shower units, each equipped with luxurious amenities and linked to a complimentary service for clothes steaming.
As part of the offering, garments such as suits and dresses can be steamed by housekeeping while guests shower, and will be returned within ten minutes.
Access is also provided to a dedicated relaxation area, with high-comfort seating, large screen televisions, and an array of local and international newspapers, magazines and books.
Café style refreshments are served throughout the day, including a delicious breakfast offering in the morning, hot and cold beverages, and a delectable range of canapés, snacks and sweet treats, all freshly prepared by a culinary team and inspired by gourmet flavours from around the world.
Peter Baumgartner, chief commercial officer of Etihad Airways, said: “Our latest airport lounge is a milestone for Etihad Airways and has been launched following extensive market research into the requirements of our First and Business Class guests.
“Once again, we have benchmarked ourselves against some of the world’s leading hotels and restaurants, while placing the warmth of Arabian hospitality at the heart of the experience.”
