Etihad Airways officially opened its first U.S. west coast First and Business Class Premium Lounge at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in the new Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT). Building on a growing global reputation for product innovation and development, the lounge reflects a commitment to delivering exceptional hospitality experiences for First and Business Class guests, Etihad Guest Platinum, Gold and Silver members flying on EY170, and Etihad Airways Partner (EAP) airlines’ equivalent Platinum and Gold members.
“LAWA and our airline partners are committed to continuing our initiatives to transform and modernize LAX into a world-class airport that Angelenos and visitors deserve,” said LAWA Chief Executive Officer Deborah Flint. “We applaud Etihad Airways in bringing this exciting, new premium lounge experience that truly caters to the modern traveler.”
The new facility moves away from the normal conventions of airport lounge design, and features the same ‘Modern Arabian’ decorative elements which characterize Etihad Airways’ new international lounges. The décor draws inspiration from the geometric patterns found in the traditional and modern architecture of Abu Dhabi and its spectacular desert landscape.
Martin Drew, Etihad Airways Senior Vice President Americas, said: “As a world-leading airline, Etihad Airways continues to redefine travel, setting new benchmarks for innovative service on the ground and in the air.”
“Our new First and Business Class Lounge in Los Angeles demonstrates our unwavering commitment to travelers on the U.S. West Coast, and in the United States as a whole, by providing them with the intuitive hospitality they have come to expect from our people and our brand. It gives us great pleasure to inaugurate this facility.”
More akin to top hotels, fine dining establishments and private members’ clubs, the new lounge provides a tranquil environment in which guests can relax, re-energize, be entertained, and enjoy the finest culinary experiences and hospitality services for which the airline is renowned. The space features luxuriously appointed seating, an à la carte dining area, showcase bar, TV area, shower facilities, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, multi-zone electrical and USB power outlets, and a selection of international magazines and daily newspapers. A separate VIP area can also be made available when required.
