Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, has just announced a brand new travel experience for its passengers, and it’s one you need to take note of if you enjoy flying in style.
The airline, which is constantly on the search for novel innovations, has officially come together with Italian designer Giorgio Armani to create a new range of in-flight tableware and textiles that promise to give travelers the ultimate luxe experience while on the go. The collaborative collection with Armani/Casa has been named ‘The Constellation Collection’, and takes inspiration from the stars. Take a closer look at it below.
The range features ceramics, glassware, cutlery and serving ware, along with plush bed linens, all of which also serve as a love letter to the UAE. How? Take a closer look: While the multiple textures used in the Etihad x Armani/Casa dinnerware represent the cultural diversity in the United Arab Emirates, the soothing color palette of the pieces honor the surroundings of Abu Dhabi, the home of Etihad Airways. Notes of deep green serve as a nod to the UAE’s trademark date palm trees, while cool shades of aquamarine pay homage to the mangroves, and slate gray looks to the concrete jungle that resides in the heart of Abu Dhabi, reflective of its impressively futuristic skyline. As for the textiles, Etihad’s Business Class family can enjoy a new look via Armani/Casa’s signature design pillow and duvet sets, and a new set of memory foam mattresses that make on-flight naps twice as comfortable. The soundest sleep one can get in the sky? You bet.
“Today we unveil a completely new and elevated way to fly with Etihad Airways—an experience defined by our Emirati heritage, yet shaped by a clear vision for our future,” shares Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer of Etihad. “Known globally for its Italian luxury and elegance, Armani/Casa is the ideal brand partner to create an unparalleled level of bespoke service and refinement for our guests.” And there’s more. Given Etihad’s dedication to offering unparalleled on-flight experiences that also respect the planet, it’s important to note that the Armani/Casa collection isn’t just beautiful to look at, it also comes with a sustainable side. Along with an elevated look, durability, and high-quality finish, the pieces of the Etihad x Armanin/Casa line are lighter in weight than most, and have effectively reduced equipment weight by up to 10%, therefore cutting down fuel emissions. Indulging oneself never felt better.
