First-class and business passengers traveling with Etihad Airways from Paris can now make use of the carrierâ€™s new executive lounge at Charles de Gaulle Airport. Located at Terminal 2, the US$8 million facility will also be available to passengers flying to Abu Dhabi on an Etihad code-share ticket. Etihad has responded to rising demand by introducing two daily services from Paris to Abu Dhabiâ€”one departing at 11 a.m., the other taking off at 9:40 p.mâ€”with numerous connections to Asia. Â Art curator Bertrand Epaud has been brought in to set the toneâ€”original pieces include fish sculptures by glass-blower Jean-Claude Novaro and Arabic calligraphy by Hassan Massoudy. Apple workstations are tucked away in a quiet corner, while visitors may also make use of the new showers and changing facilities before boarding. The lounge also provides a free limo service from the airport to the center of town.
