Etihad Airways Offers Chauffeur Service to Economy Class

According to TheChauffeur.com, chauffeured cars no longer belong to just first- and business-class passengers, as Etihad Airways is democratizing the service by offering it to Coral Economy class guests arriving or departing from London Heathrow Airport. The rates are comparable to London’s black cabs, but include the benefits of a professional limo service, with chauffeur greeting at arrivals, luggage assistance, curb-side drop off and guaranteed BMW or Mercedes vehicles. Guests can book at www.etihad.com/chauffeur and receive an instant price quote. This exposure to limousine service could create a new, expanded niche of clients for operators to cater to.
