Etihad Airways brings the highest standard of hospitality to the modern traveller

787-9 ETI #229-ZB077

Johannesburg joins 8 of the world’s leading cities in having the honour of being served by Etihad Airways’ Boeing 787 Dreamliner.  The two-class B787-9 Dreamliner features Etihad Airways’ next-generation Business and Economy Class cabins. It will have daily flights from Joburg to Abu Dhabi.  Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways CEO, explained that the decision to upgrade to the Dreamliner aircraft on the Joburg route was to meet the needs of growing numbers of business and leisure passengers travelling to and from South Africa.

  “The Business Studios all offer direct aisle access, a fully flat bed of up to 80.5 inches long, and an increase of 20 per cent in personal space.”

Baumgartner said “Today’s modern traveller is constantly searching for comfort, innovation and convenience, and we aim to provide the highest standard of hospitality and technological advancements to make any journey a memorable one.” John Friel, Etihad Airways General Manager South Africa, added: “The introduction of the Boeing 787 is a welcome development that will further enhance our guests’ experience on this route. Our luxurious Dreamliners offer a best-in-class experience, and attention to every last detail.”
