Etihad chauffeur service for Paris customers
Abu Dhabi, May 7, 2008
Etihad Airways has introduced a new luxury chauffeur service Etihad Chauffeur, for its premium customers travelling to and from Paris Charles de Gaulle airport.
The airline will offer the complimentary luxury car service,to all its first and business class customers travelling within a 100 kilometres radius of the main airport in Paris, said an Etihad official.
The airline has selected two different types of limousines to operate the new service - the Mercedes E series for first class customers and the Peugeot executive sedan for business class customers.
Geert Boven, Etihad Airways’ executive vice president sales and services, said Etihad has established a reputation for providing the very highest standards of hospitality and Etihad Chauffeur is a further example of our service quality.
“We believe that the experience our customers have on the ground is just as important as the one they experience with us in the air. Travelling to and from the airport often can leave passengers feeling pressured, something the new chauffeur service totally eliminates,” Boven noted.
Etihad has chosen Chabe Limousines, one of France’s prominent chauffeured transportation companies, to provide the new service within the Paris and Isle de France area.
Customers flying into Paris from Abu Dhabi with Etihad Airways will be met in the arrivals area and escorted to their limousine by their chauffeur, ensuring little time is wasted at the airport.
The Etihad Chauffeur service is also available for the airline’s premium customers at Abu Dhabi, London Heathrow, Manchester, Dublin, Bangkok, New York, Munich, Frankfurt, Sydney and Toronto, with more destinations to be added during 2008.
