The service is available in 25 cities worldwide including Abu Dhabi, London Heathrow, New York JFK, Chicago O’Hare, Bangkok, Sydney, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Moscow, Beijing, Shanghai and Mumbai among others. It can be booked online or by contacting an Etihad office at least 24 hours before your journey.

Air Berlin. Passengers can be picked up within 40km of the Berlin airport and 60km of the Dusseldorf one, and when they arrive in Abu Dhabi, they have the choice to be chauffeured anywhere in the UAE, and the same is true upon return.

Emirates. Transfers are available from a passenger’s home, hotel or business to the airport, from the airport to their final destination and to and from the airport to a home or hotel when making a stopover.

El Al. Chauffeurs will be available to take First Class passengers both for airport drop-off from a hotel, business or home before departure and for pick-up upon arrival in the destination.
