Etihad opens ‘The House’ lounges in Australia
22 Oct 2018 - by
Etihad Airways, in partnership with No1 Lounges, is introducing the newly launched lounge brand ‘The House’ to Sydney and Melbourne.
Eligible Etihad and partner airline, Virgin Australia, passengers, travelling through Sydney will be able to experience The House from October 23, and from Melbourne from October 27. This follows the brand’s launch at Heathrow Terminal 4, on October 5.
To be known as 'The House, home of Etihad Airways', the new brand represents Etihad and the needs of its premium customers.
The kitchens and bars have been enhanced to offer guests greater choice. All dishes will be freshly prepared and guests will be able to enjoy self-service and à la carte menus in the upgraded dining areas. The bars will have a new cocktail and mocktail list, and a selection of Australian wines.
Over the next year, both lounges will be refurbished and see the introduction of new reading rooms. The House in Sydney will have a new private room for VIP guests, such as those travelling in The Residence.
Complimentary entry will continue to be offered to Etihad Airways business- and first-class customers, as well as those travelling in The Residence. Gold and platinum members of Etihad Guest frequent flyer programme and business-class and first-class travellers ticketed on codeshare partner services operated by Etihad Airways will also be eligible.
The airline will also offer paid-for access to The House for its economy-class travellers. The lounge will continue to be used by the premium passengers of a small number of other airlines and, subject to availability, will be available for purchase by passengers of other airlines.
