Ahead of its first flight to Washington, DC, on March 31, Etihad Airways held an on-board showcase for passengers in the American capital.
The new Boeing 777 aircraft which will serve on the route was delivered last week and stopped at Dulles International Airport for the one-day event.
A team of more than 25 cabin crew escorted guests around the aircraft interior, with seats by Sogerma, BE Aerospace and Weber, and bespoke features highlighting collaborations with Poltrona Frau, Ettore Billotta, and Panasonic.
Daniel Barranger, Etihad Airways Vice President Global Sales, said: “The Washington metropolitan region represents a wide geographical spread and strong economy. This route is vital to supporting our ongoing growth in the US and the increasing ties between the US and the United Arab Emirates. This region is home to America’s second largest market for travel to the Middle East, with significant demand for premium services. I believe our award winning services will provide greater choice for both business and leisure travellers when we arrive in March.”
