Elevate Your Travel Experience with Etihad Airways


Featured Destinations


Get ready for a bespoke in-flight experience unlike any other and enjoy personalised options every step of the way with Etihad Airways. Feel like a VIP regardless of which class you choose, with intuitive service, tantalising on-board dining and some of the most contemporary cabins in the sky.

With daily departures from London Heathrow, Manchester and Dublin, Etihad Airways believe your getaway starts from them moment you leave home, offering an elevated experience for passengers both on the ground and in the air. With flights to over 85 destinations worldwide, the airline boasts an accolade of prestigious awards, not to mention an apt reputation for exceptional service and unparalleled in-flight features.

Economy Class

Even in Economy, you can expect a truly personalised experience, with three separate seating options offering something to suit every preference. Enjoy all of the airline's usual perks with Economy Standard, including a minimum of 23kg baggage allowance, complimentary dining and a selection of drinks. If you're looking for more space to spread out, opt for Extra legroom seats and guarantee a generous 36 inches of legroom designed to make your journey more comfortable. For those who prefer a little peace and quiet in the air, Etihad Airways have recently introduced Economy Neighbour-Free, which allows you to bid for up to three neighbouring seats which will remain empty throughout your journey, allowing for a more private in-flight experience.

For travellers looking for a step up from Economy, Premium Economy offers extra legroom, wider seats, and a more spacious cabin. It's the ideal choice for those seeking additional comfort without the price tag of Business or First Class.

Business Class

Prepare to be dazzled by Etihad Airway's exquisite Business Class offering. You'll have plenty of time to unwind and get into the holiday spirit before your flight, thanks to dedicated check-in and plush lounge access. Take the opportunity to catch some shut eye once you board, with fully flat beds, mood lighting and an in-seat massage function. If you're feeling peckish, simply let one of the dedicated cabin crew know. You'll be tucking into a mouth-watering meal with a tasty tipple before you know it, courtesy of the Dine Anytime Programme and Food and Beverage Manager. Moreover, if you fancy a change of scenery on-board, you can head to The Lobby, a hotel-inspired meeting place in the sky exclusively for Business Class passengers and above.

The First Class Apartment

Surpassing luxury air travel as you know it, Etihad Airway's First Class offering boasts an array of enhanced features fit for royalty. The sumptuous A380 cabins have been extensively upgraded to offer The First Apartment, allowing guests to unwind on their private leather armchair or enjoy sweet dreams on a separate fully flat bed. Get comfy with the complimentary loungewear and perfect your look at your private vanity unit with lit mirror. You can also make use of an exclusive amenity kit and refresh before you land at the on-board shower. Tantalise your taste buds as you tuck into the á la carte dining options available courtesy of an experienced in-flight chef, or treat your palette with a crisp Pinot Grigio from the boutique wine list.

The Residence

Get set for an A-list experience simply oozing with glamour at The Residence, a spectacular three room suite in the sky complete with bedroom, living room and en suite shower room. You can expect elite treatment from the moment you book, thanks to the services of Etihad Airway's VIP Travel Concierge, a luxury chauffeur and private check-in and lounge access. A pioneering feat in luxury air travel, guests flying in The Residence will be taken care of by their own private butler, dedicated to tending their every need. Sit down to a mouth-watering meal at your own private dining table, catch up on the latest film releases on your 27-inch flat screen television or freshen up in your full-height shower, with use of hair dryer and luxury robe.

Regardless of the cabin class you choose, Etihad Airways offers an extensive range of in-flight entertainment options. From the latest movies to TV shows, music, and even live sports events, you'll have plenty to keep you entertained. Plus, the airline provides luxurious amenities, including plush bedding, amenity kits, and more, to enhance your in-flight experience.
