The only way to arrive in Abu Dhabi

Arrival lounge

At Etihad, we understand that after a long flight it’s not always possible to check in to your hotel room immediately or freshen up before a meeting. With this in mind, we have created the only Arrivals Lounge in the UAE.

Freshen up with an energising shower while we have your clothes pressed, or enjoy our selection of snacks and canapés.

And when you’re ready to leave, our Etihad Chauffeur service will take you from the airport to anywhere in the UAE.

You’ll find our Arrivals Lounge immediately after customs, in Terminals 1 and 3 of Abu Dhabi International Airport.
