The World’s Best Airport Lounges (Part 1)

Etihad Airways First Class Lounge – Abu Dhabi

Only very recently opened (2016) the Etihad Airways First Class Lounge in Abu Dhabi is as lavish and full of grandeur as an airport lounge can get. Etihad explained this with the phrase ‘a reimagined lounge experience’. The world’s most elite travellers were the main focus for the design of the lounge. Boasting a tasting menu designed by the chefs from the gilded Emirates Palace Hotel and featuring dishes curated by a former Shangri La and Ritz Carlton Head Chef it’s clear that Etihad are taking the dining element of their lounge very seriously. Feedback from their most frequent flyers has brought about the inclusion of a fitness room and a Six Senses Spa.

However, the ‘show-stopper’ element of their lounge is without doubt The Residence. With its own permanent butler, this facility features a vast lounge area, prayer room, library, marble bathroom and shower room and a beautiful dining area offering a completely bespoke menu.

In a word…Stunning.

Emirates First Class Lounge – Dubai

Still in its infancy, the Emirates First Class Lounge in Dubai (Terminal 3) offers several amenities to its guests including; a cigar bar, fine dining with fresh ingredients and shower spas. But the area of this lounge that sets it apart from the competition has to be the wine cellar, Le Clos. The expert sommeliers guide guests through the best vintages to indulge upon before their flight. After, relaxing and unwinding in this fantastic lounge, make use of the lounge’s direct boarding allowing guests to step straight onboard the flight.

What Our Clients Say

Saving our customers time and money

Creative Resins has been at the forefront of decorative glass technology for over 30 years. When Louise contacted us to help with a trip to Oman, we discovered that the company had been using an airline’s website to book direct, paying in excess of £5,000 per trip in Business Class. Using our negotiated fares on this one flight YourTravel saved over £1000 per trip. Upon further investigation and a year’s great relationship, we delved into the companies travel policies and booking habits. We found that travel was often booked at the last minute and there was no one in authority to keep a watchful eye over what was being booked and where. We then worked with Louise to create passenger profiles for all of Creative Resins travellers including details such as preferred seat numbers, meals and airlines – we also set in place cabin restrictions (who can and can’t travel in an upgraded travel class). We then looked at the company’s calendar for the coming year, estimating when and where they would need to book travel and agreed that Your Travel would be proactive in trying to get confirmed travel dates from 4 weeks prior to the trip dates. This created a stress-free booking system that took budget and organisational pressure from the senior management, knowing they would always be working with a cost-effective travel budget. This lead to a reduced travel spend of just over 16% without cost-cutting and maintaining a high level of service.

‘’Working with Your Travel Corporate has been an enlightening experience, we were wasting money on travel and working with John and the team was very easy indeed. Everything is taken care of on every trip and we get a level of service that just can’t be achieved by the bigger travel agents, being treated as a valued client and not just another customer is fantastic!’’ Louise Bollom, Director
