Manchester to open further airline lounge

Etihad Airlines is in the process of completing its brand new executive lounge at Manchester Airport, due to open later in the month.  It will feature “5-star” pre-flight dining, a business centre, family room, and a relaxation centre.  Luxurious bathrooms and shower facilities will be provided for customers.  A prayer room is also incorporated as is the airline's popular “Six Senses” spa.

At Manchester the airline operates daily to Abu Dhabi but readers should note that whilst on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday a day service departs at 09:00 for a 20:05 (local) arrival, on a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, it is an overnight flight leaving at 20:10 touching down at 07:10. 

The airline is competing with rival Emirates to nearby Dubai, who already has a lounge in operation for its twice daily services. www.etihadairways.com
