ETIHAD AIRWAYS, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has announced it will introduce a premium lounge in Manchester, the third Etihad lounge outside of the carrier’s home base. The new facility, which will open late this year in the airport’s Terminal 1, is part of a gradual roll out of lounges across the airline's network, and will reflect Etihad’s award-winning style, service concept and high quality look and feel already seen in its lounges in Abu Dhabi, Frankfurt and Heathrow. Etihad has been operating services from Manchester since 2006 and sees the airport as an easy alternative to Heathrow for connecting flights from Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and the Isle of Man, with its codeshare partners. In 2009, the airline signed a three-year deal to be the official shirt sponsor and partner of English Premier League side, Manchester City. www.etihadairways.com
