Etihad revolutionises First Class with the First Apartment. More than a seat, it is a living space for the discerning traveller.

A revolutionised First Class

A revolutionised First Class

The First Apartment is upholstered with the finest Poltrona Frau leather and features a wide armchair, an ottoman and even includes space to walk around in. The ottoman opens out into an 81-inch long bed.

A companion can join you for a meal or meeting in your spacious First Apartment. When travelling with a partner the divider between Apartments can be lowered to join rooms.

The First Apartments come equipped with an adjustable 24-inch flat screen TV, which can be viewed from the armchair or while relaxing in bed, together with a vanity cabinet with ample lighting and space for your personal effects, a chilled drinks cabinet and a wardrobe.

Freshen up before arrival with exclusive amenities and an energising shower in the First Class bathroom.

Fly to London from Abu Dhabi and be the first to experience the luxury of our A380.

Flights will operate commercially from Abu Dhabi to London Heathrow starting December 2014.

On-Ground Experience

We have taken the finest details of hospitality and refined luxury from around the world and created a memorable experience. For a First Class guest, every element of the journey is designed to reflect a discerning lifestyle.

The journey begins with a complimentary Etihad Chauffeur, offered at over 30 cities.

At Abu Dhabi International Airport, guests are greeted curbside by a Porter and Concierge before being escorted to a dedicated First Class check-in reception. Guests can relax in the exclusive Etihad First Class Lounge, with five-star dining, featuring the Chef’s Table. Guests can enjoy pre-flight pampering with a range of complimentary treatments in the Six Senses Spa.
