Etihad Airways’ Guests Offered Executive Coach Travel To and From Abu Dhabi International Airport

Guests of Etihad Airways’ Coral Zone can now enjoy the superior hospitality of the UAE’s national airline before and after flying, with the unveiling of the new fleet of luxuriously appointed Mercedes-Benz coaches.

Etihad has just taken delivery of 16 brand new top-of-the-range coaches, which will offer convenient connections for any Dubai or Al Ain-based guests travelling to and from Abu Dhabi International Airport.

“We are certain Etihad guests will be impressed with the high-tech entertainment systems and hospitality available on each coach. These deluxe luxury coaches offer superior comforts, and set new levels in service standards,” said Ian Ferguson-Brown, Head of Brand Management and Communications.

Shortly, every Etihad coach will come with an onboard porter who will welcome guests, helping them with their luggage, while handing them a newspaper.

Then once the guests have stepped aboard the coaches they will take their places in any of the elegant and ergonomically shaped seats. Each seat reclines and has a tray which can easily fold away.

Travelling with Etihad – either on the ground or in the air – always brings best-in-class entertainment, and the Etihad Mercedes-Benz fleet is equipped with a DVD player, two 14-inch monitors, and an audio system with CD and cassette drive.

Each Etihad coach is equipped with the very best climate controlled systems, which along with individually adjustable lighting, provides a relaxing and pleasant atmosphere.

Currently Etihad Airways offer Coral Zone guests a unique check-in service in Dubai, which enables them to check in all baggage up to 24 hours before departure, and then travel to Abu Dhabi on the luxury coaches.

This service accompanies the Limousine service for all Diamond and Pearl Zone guests, which provides an exclusive door-to-door collection when travelling with Etihad Airways.

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, is the world’s fastest growing airline and will now fly to 24 destinations in the Middle East, Europe, North America and Asia.

Together with its divisions Etihad Holidays and Etihad Crystal Cargo, Etihad Airways is changing the way people see the world.
