Fly high in

Etihad First

A time and place to call your own. Step into your private suite, unwind with a drink in your leather armchair or let us prepare your bed whilst you take a shower on board our A380. Choose when and how you'd like to dine with an extensive a la carte menu and boutique wine list.


It's in a class of its own

When you fly First, our Etihad Chauffeur will drive you in luxury to the airport. After Priority Check-in, relax and dine in style in our First Lounge & Spa. On board, sink into your seat, help yourself to a drink from your chilled refreshments cabinet and choose how to spend your time.

Let your journey begin

In Abu Dhabi Airport, we'll welcome you to our exclusive Etihad First Lounge & Spa.

Etihad First Lounge

With fresh food and fine wines, the First lounge is a peaceful place to relax before your flight. Take a seat at our feature bar and enjoy a drink or cocktail from the Etihad cellar or let off some steam in the Fitness Room. And when it's time to face the outside world again, we'll press your clothes while you take a shower and freshen up.

A lounge like no other

If you're flying with Etihad Airways in The Residence or in First, or if you are an Etihad Guest Platinum member, our access is complimentary. If you're flying in Business or Economy, you can choose from 2, 4 and 6 hour upgrade packages to access the lounge, subject to availability. Check lounge access rates.

Upgrade to the VIP room

Treat yourself to the luxury of a little extra space in the VIP room. Unwind in a private lounge area, with space for up to four friends or family, and let our dedicated host serve you refreshments. Access is on a first come, first served basis for guests of the First Lounge, for an additional US$ 100 or 11,500 Etihad Guest Miles.

Relax in The Lobby

Feel like stretching your legs? The Lobby is the perfect space for our A380 Upper Deck guests to relax, socialise or even catch up on some live sport on the widescreen TV. And if we can't tempt you with snacks and drinks, you can even stay connected, plug into a power port and get some work done.

Time to sleep

If you're flying on the A380, you have a separate bed to snuggle into. And when you wake, you can take a shower and prepare for your day - or night - ahead. On our B787, our crew will recline your chair into a fully-flat bed and make sure you have everything you need for a good night's sleep.
