Lounge access is available at all Etihad destinations and dedicated Etihad lounges are available in Abu Dhabi, London, Manchester, Paris, Frankfurt, Dublin, Manchester, Sydney and Washington DC. Etihad Business Class Lounges include all-day dining from an extensive international buffet, Six Senses Spa (London Heathrow & Abu Dhabi only) and business facilities with complimentary wireless internet.  Etihad First Class Lounge (in Abu Dhabi only) includes Chef’s Table, Cigar Lounge, five-star dining and complimentary treatments in the Six Senses Spa.


Etihad has two key loyalty programmes that are essential to business travel. Etihad Guest is the loyalty programme aimed to reward all Etihad travellers and BusinessConnect is the loyalty programme designed for companies.

Etihad Guest is the award winning loyalty programme for frequent flyers. Benefits include the option to redeem miles on flights with no blackout periods or at the Reward Shop. Etihad Guest Silver and Gold members also enjoy additional benefits such as lounge access, even when travelling in Coral Economy. Etihad BusinessConnect, the loyalty programme for companies, is tailor made for businesses with between 2 and 50 business travellers. The scheme links the traveller’s Etihad Guest accounts to their company scheme. So while the business traveller racks up miles, they’re also amassing them for their company, earning them even more free flights.
