Etihad A380 Private Multi-Room Residence – Exclusive Photos

Etihad Airways Airbus A380 fleet will feature the world’s first private multi-room cabin on a commercial passenger aircraft.

The Residence features a living room, double bedroom, separate ensuite shower room, and for the first time in the airline industry, a dedicated, trained Butler.

Measuring 125 square feet in total area, The Residence will be located on the forward upper deck of the airline’s new fleet of Airbus A380s and will be available for single or double occupancy.

Guests staying in The Residence will have a dedicated Butler on call throughout the flight, offering the type of discrete personal service and attention to detail found in the world’s most exclusive hotels. These hospitality professionals have been selected by Etihad Airways and are undergoing specialist training at the Savoy Butler Academy in London, part of the world-famous Savoy Hotel. The Butler’s role is multi-faceted including that of a Concierge and Maitre d’hotel.

A dedicated VIP Concierge team will ensure all aspects of the experience, including booking luxury limousine transfers, check-in, and custom menu planning, are handled with the utmost discretion. Chefs will prepare a wide range of gourmet à la carte meals or create custom menus.
