ETIHAD, based in Abu Dhabi, has seized on the family market for premium passengers departing or passing through the new Terminal 3.  Introduced is a new service for children with specially trained nannies.  They initially meet and greet the children at the executive lounge entrance before taking them to the family room.  There the children can play with the toys, read books and watch television all under supervision of the nannies that have professional training in childcare and first aid.  Many of the nannies have a background in the hospitality industry, which includes five-star hotels in the Middle East.  The nanny service allows parents much needed time to unwind next door in the First and Business Class lounges and helps provide an adult environment for those other passengers who are not travelling with children.  The airline will shortly open up special family-only check-in desks at the terminal which will be available for all classes. www.etihadairways.com
