Etihad Airways is offering customers in the UAE who book a first or business class seat a second seat for free, as part of a massive promotion to highlight the airline’s award-winning premium services on the ground and in the sky.
The ‘two-for-one’ offer is available to customers who book first or business class seats between February 12 and 16, inclusive. All outbound travel must be completed by March 31, 2009 and journeys completed by May 31, 2009.
“We are immensely proud of the award-winning service we offer our customers in both first and business class across our network from Abu Dhabi,” said Geert Boven, Etihad Airways’ executive vice president sales and services. “Our new ‘inspired service’ style has proved to be a massive hit with our customers and, thanks to this promotion, thousands of lucky travellers will get a chance to sample the pleasure a second time, free of charge.”
The Abu Dhabi-based airline recently completed a major service upgrade to its premium cabins across its fleet. The new ‘Inspired Service’ style is now available across the airline’s global network of 50 destinations.
Etihad offers fully-flat beds in both first and business class as well as more than 600 hours of on-demand entertainment provided via individual wide-screen video screens, operated by touch-screen technology.
Passengers can eat whenever they wish during the flight, from a la carte fine dining menus or opt for kitchen style snacks.
Etihad has also introduced a new cabin crew position called the onboard food and beverage manager, responsible for championing the quality, presentation and delivery of food and beverages on board, ensuring it is consistently to the highest standards.
The promotion applies to all Etihad routes except Bangkok, Cairo, Islamabad, Kuala Lumpur, Lahore and Toronto.
