Etihad Airways has partnered with private jet charter company Victor to offer its first class passengers the ultimate convenience of connecting their private jet flights with Etihad’s A380 services, which currently fly to London, Sydney, and New York.
The airline is the first scheduled airline to team up with a private jet charter provider to promote specific scheduled flights on its extensive global network. The partnership features a bespoke technology integration which allows Etihad Airways guests to book The Residence or First Apartments on its A380, together with private jet charter flights, directly from the Victor mobile app.
“With the A380, Etihad Airways has designed innovative and luxurious interiors, products and services which match the sophisticated needs of the private jet customer,” says Shane O’Hare, Etihad Airways’ senior vice president marketing. “Our unique agreement with Victor will give those customers wanting the ultimate luxury private jet experience a simplified end-to-end journey, combining our magnificent A380 with a private jet by simply using their laptop, smartphone or tablet.”
Members of Etihad Guest, the airline’s frequent flyer program, will be provided with access to the Victor app and an incentive offer of a Victor card, with a value of US$1,500 as a discount towards their first private jet charter booked using the app. www.etihad.com
