At a ceremony in Abu Dhabi, Etihad Airways, took delivery of its first Airbus A380 aircraft.
Etihad Airways is the thirteenth airline to operate the A380, and has ordered 10 of the super jumbo’s from Airbus with the wings of course, manufactured right here in Flintshire.
Etihad’s A380 is designed to carry 498 guests in four living spaces on the aircraft, including two VIP guests in The Residence by Etihad™, nine guests in the First Apartments, 70 guests in the Business Studio, and 417 guests in Economy SmartSeats.
Equipped with the latest entertainment systems and the plush surroundings of Etihad Airways’ interior, passengers can expect an exceptionally comfortable journey.
Etihad Airways’ President and Chief Executive Officer, James Hogan, said:
“The Etihad Airways A380 will offer a world class travel experience across all cabins. We are delighted to launch this first A380, with nine to follow, which will set a new benchmark for air travel, particularly with the introduction of the Residence by Etihad™, the only three room cabin in the sky.”
Etihad’s first A380 will make its debut on the popular London Heathrow route, from Abu Dhabi International Airport, in December. By the end of 2015, Etihad Airways will have five A380s in operation, with plans to introduce the aircraft on the airline’s Sydney and New York JFK routes.
