Instant Airport Upgrade

Changed your mind? There’s still time to upgrade when you check in at the airport. When you’ve upgraded, use our lounge to relax and enjoy delicious refreshments before your flight.

Your fare will determine if you are eligible to upgrade, subject to availability. Pay with cash (selected airports only), credit card or Etihad Guest Miles.

Our Chauffeur service is not available for Instant Airport Upgrades, and you will only accrue Etihad Guest Miles as per your original ticket.

If you are flying from Russia, only Russian bank cards are accepted at the airport. (No cash or international cards.)
