New Era Of Flying With Etihad

Etihad have been transforming expectations of air travel by creating truly remarkable experiences in the sky. Today marks the beginning of their completely reimagined journey, as they take delivery of their very first A380 and 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The flagship aircraft arrived in their distinctive new livery and all-new cabin interiors which include the ultra-luxurious Residence by Etihad™, the only three-room suite in the sky. They also celebrate this momentous occasion with the unveiling of our stylish and elegant new style & image, paving the way for a new age of glamorous and sophisticated flying. 

Inspired by traditional Emirati design patterns and facets of their home Abu Dhabi, the bold and exciting new aircraft livery reflects their strong and proud Arabian heritage in a fresh and modern way. 

The same innovative spirit and unique sense of design can be seen crafted into every stitch of the new elegant uniforms, created by Italian Haute Couturier Ettore Bilotta at his atelier in Milan. Unveiled today, our new uniforms will take to the runway from 27 December. 

And as they continue to deliver a consistently extraordinary experience onboard and on the ground, they have been recognised and awarded by the industry and guests alike. Etihad has been awarded the World’s Leading Airline for another year, as well as winning many other prestigious awards:
