May 7, 2014 Exhibitions No Comments Email Email

unnamed (2)At the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai today, Etihad Airways showcased the latest developments in luxury air travel with its innovative, new premium cabins for the airline’s fleet of Airbus A380 and Boeing B787 Dreamliner aircraft.

While each of the ground-breaking new cabins were on display, the main attraction at the Etihad Airways standwas The Residence by Etihad™, with its three-room private cabin, offering a living room, double bedroom and ensuite shower room.

The stand opened just hours after Etihad Airways was voted the Middle East’s Leading Airline for the eighth consecutive year at the World Travel Awards Middle East. The airline also received awards for the Middle East’s Leading Airline – First Class and the Middle East’s Leading Cabin Crew.

At a separate ceremony for the 2014 Business Traveller Middle East Awards, also held last night, Etihad Airways took home the titles of the Airline with the Best Economy Class and Airline with the Best Frequent Flyer Program. unnamed (3)

Etihad Airways’ President and Chief Executive Officer, James Hogan, said: “The new living spaces on display at the Arabian Travel Market today redefine inflight product and services to a new standard in commercial aviation.

“We are delivering the most advanced airline cabins in the industry, with unparalleled quality and style, and importantly at competitive prices across all three cabins.

“Etihad Airways’ World Travel Awards and Business Traveller Awards once again reflect the airline’s commitment to be the best. In every part of the business, our team continues to achieve excellence through innovation and determination,” Mr Hogan said.

The Residence by Etihad™ is located in the forward upper deck of the A380, accommodating one or two people and comes with a dedicated, professionally trained personal butler.

The A380 also features revolutionary First Apartments, which are fully private suites with a separate reclining lounge seat and full length bed, as well as chilled mini-bar, personal vanity unit and wardrobe.

The First Suite on the Etihad Airways B787 offers guests an enhanced suite with chilled mini-bar, complete privacy and centre seats, which can be joined to create a double bed.

The Business Studios, which are arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration, the airline’s first dovetail (forward and aft) layout, allow optimal use of cabin space. Each studio has a 22-inch wide seat and separate ottoman, whichcombine to form a fully flat bed of 80.5 inches length.

The Economy Smart Seat will feature on both the A380 and the B787. It offers a unique ergonomic fixed-wing headrest, giving guests a place to rest their head for added comfort and relaxation. It has a lumbar support feature and an 11-inch personal monitor screen, with all the IFE peripherals conveniently set into the seatback in front.
