Etihad Airways to launch A380 flights to Paris

Etihad Airways is introducing its award-winning A380 on the Abu Dhabi – Paris route this summer as part of seasonal adjustments to the airline’s fleet deployment plan. Featuring The Residence – the world’s first three-room suite on a commercial airliner – the aircraft will operate on one of its twice-daily services to the French capital between July 1 and October 28.
 
Paris becomes the airline’s latest A380 long haul destination following London, Sydney, New York and Melbourne. With the aircraft upgrade, Etihad Airways is able to offer an all-A380 daily service from Paris to both Melbourne and Sydney via the airline’s Abu Dhabi hub.
 
The additional capacity will provide business and leisure travelers from the UAE the benefit of experiencing the double decker aircraft – with a living room, bedroom and shower in The Residence, and more premium seats in the First Apartments and Business Studios – to meet demand to another popular long haul destination during the peak summer months.
 
Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways Chief Executive Officer, said: “Paris is one of our busiest and best performing European routes, so the deployment of this upgraded service will benefit travelers to and from Abu Dhabi, and our popular connecting cities across Asia and Australia.”
 
The Residence is an ultra-private, three-room suite featuring a living room with a 32” LCD monitor, bedroom with a double bed, separate en-suite shower room and dedicated personal Butler trained at the world-renowned Savoy Butler Academy in London to look after the needs of its discerning guests. The cabin also comes with a private chef ready to custom-create menus to order.
 
A Flying Nanny trained by the world-famous Norland College in the UK, is onboard every A380 to provide dedicated childcare support for families traveling with young children.
 
Etihad Airways’ approximate one-way fare, including taxes and surcharges, in The Residence from Paris to Abu Dhabi is US$ 10,750; and Paris to Sydney or Melbourne is US$ 16,800.
