Etihad Launches A380 Flights to New York with an Exclusive Offer
Etihad Airways has announced that beginning on April 22, flights to New York JFK will be operated by its A380 double-decker aircraft. The famous plane has the opulent Residence, a three-bedroom suite with its own private bedroom, living area, and bathroom in the air.
Enhancing the Passenger Experience
Antonoaldo Neves, CEO of Etihad Airways, expressed excitement about introducing the A380 on transatlantic routes, emphasizing the elevated experience across all classes. The airline aims to cater to diverse passenger preferences, ensuring a refreshing and relaxed arrival for both leisure and business travelers.
Strategic network expansion
The decision to deploy the A380 on the popular New York route aligns with Etihad's strategy to meet growing demand and expand its network. Etihad's commitment to enhancing capacity in the vital US market is expected to strengthen connectivity to the broader GCC and Indian subcontinent, attracting more visitors to Abu Dhabi.
Dual Daily Flights to New York
Etihad will run two flights per day to New York; one will use the A380 and the other the 787-9, which has First, Business, and Economy class seating. This action and their upcoming new route to Boston on March 31, which is just a few weeks before the A380 service to New York begins, serve as examples of Etihad's aspirations for development.
Passenger Comfort in Every Class
Each passenger has an unforgettable journey on the Etihad Airways A380. Specialized waiting spaces and more spacious chairs are available in Economy. In addition to the private areas available in the Business Studios on the upper deck, there is a lounge and bar area called The Lobby that is located between the First and Business cabins.

A lie-flat bed, a large leather lounge chair, and fine tableware are the features of first-class flats. In addition, there is a private shower area available to first-class passengers.
