The Business Traveller Awards Middle East were presented on the opening night of the Arabian Travel Market expo in Dubai, with the event attended by travel industry and media professionals.

Antonoaldo Neves, Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways, said: “Etihad’s special guests and clients tell us time and time again of the great service and hospitality they experience when they travel on Etihad. This award is testament to the hard work, consistency and commitment of our Cabin Crew who always go the extra mile for our guests. On behalf of everyone at Etihad, I would like to sincerely thank our Cabin Crew, and thank our guests and the public for voting for Etihad.”

The win in the Best Economy Class category is timely for the carrier, who also unveiled its latest business and economy class seats at the expo.

These new seats will be fitted to Etihad’s 787 Dreamliners, with three new examples to be delivered to the operator by the third quarter of 2023.

The updated business class product will feature a privacy door on each suite, whilst introducing the Elements seat by Collins into service.

Economy on the 787 will benefit from 271 seats lighter in weight than the current crop, benefitting fuel efficiency of the fleet.
