Etihad Airways has opened its new First and Business class lounge at Sydney's Kingsford Smith International Airport.
The facility, which is the airline's first lounge in Australia, is located in the international terminal's Pier C, adjacent to Gate 51.
It is open to all Etihad Airways Diamond first class and Pearl business class customers, as well as qualifying members of the Etihad Guest loyalty programme.
In addition, food and beverage service includes a choice of either restaurant-style á la carte dining or buffet. Local Australian wines are also available, and these complement alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages including beers, champagne, aperitifs, spirits and liqueurs.
Etihad Airways currently serves Sydney with daily flights, but most are operated by Virgin Australia, of which the Gulf carrier is a shareholder. The two airlines maintain a codeshare partnership.
