Flying between Europe’s busy hub of Paris Charles de Gaulle airport and Abu Dhabi? First- and business-class passengers will be interested to know that Etihad Airways recently unveiled its own premium lounge in Terminal 2-- an $8 million project that includes luxurious bathrooms with showers, international dining options, a family entertainment area, and a business center with individual large-screen Apple computer workstations. Premium passengers of codeshare partner Air France-KLM will also benefit with lounge privileges when continuing on Etihad to Abu Dhabi.
In response to increasing demand, Etihad has ramped up its service between Abu Dhabi and the French capital to two daily flights. Nice perk: The airline provides complimentary limo service for Diamond First and Pearl Business class customers flying into and out of CDG. For more information, visit www.etihad.com
