KARACHI (PR) – Etihad Airways opened the doors to one of its brand new aircraft for the airline’s first-ever ‘on-board showcase’ in Washington, DC. The new B777 aircraft made its maiden voyage from the Boeing Everett factory this week, stopping at Dulles International Airport for the one-day-only event. An exclusive audience from diplomatic, business and government circles was welcomed onboard the aircraft for a review of Etihad Airways’ award-winning guest experience, in advance of the launch of its daily flights to Washington, DC from March 31.

A team of more than 25 cabin crew were on hand to escort guests around the beautifully designed aircraft interior, with seats by Sogerma, BE Aerospace and Weber, and bespoke features highlighting collaborations with Poltrona Frau, Ettore Billotta, and Panasonic. Daily flights to Dulles International Airport will provide a capital-to-capital link between Washington, DC and Abu Dhabi, the federal capital of the UAE, with connections onward to Etihad Airways’ global network.
