Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has announced the introduction of its signature luxury chauffeur service for premium customers travelling to and from Italy’s Milan Malpensa International airport.
The complimentary limousine transfers begin November 20 and are available exclusively to Diamond First and Pearl Business class customers.
Personalised pick-up and drop-off services will operate to and from anywhere within a 60-kilometre radius of Milan Malpensa International Airport.
Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways’ Chief Commercial Officer, said: “Etihad Chauffeur is all about extending to ground level the inspirational experience we provide our customers in the air.
“It is yet another example of our attention to detail, innovation and the premium service quality we continue to roll out for our premium customers.
“Travelling to and from the airport can often leave passengers feeling stressed or pressured, but this is something the new chauffeur service totally eliminates.”
Etihad Airways has chosen Elite Italia, one of northern Italy’s prominent executive transportation companies to provide the chauffeur transfers, connecting with the UAE flag carrier’s daily outbound and inbound Milan flights.
Guests flying into Milan from Abu Dhabi with Etihad Airways will be met in the arrivals area and escorted to their car by their chauffeur, ensuring little time is wasted at the airport.
Etihad Chauffeur can be booked via the airline’s global contact centres, through travel agents, or on the Etihad Airways website.
Launched in 2006, Etihad Chauffeur is now available in 28 international destinations across 16 countries.
Etihad Airways operates a mix of three- and two-cabin Airbus A330s between Abu Dhabi and Milan, ensuring optimum connectivity over its Abu Dhabi hub to and from destinations across Africa, the Middle East, the Indian Subcontinent and Australasia.
Starting December 1, the airline will codeshare on Alitalia’s four weekly Rome-Abu Dhabi flights.
