Expected to accommodate 10,000 to 12,000 guests per month, the new lounge in Abu Dhabi Airport’s Terminal 1 will significantly enhance the Etihad Airways’ airport experience, providing guests with a larger, more luxurious space to relax before and between flights.

The rapid delivery of the project was made possible by the dedication and commitment of the Faithful+Gould team, who managed the fit-out from conception to completion. Daily controls and monitoring were put in place to ensure the project stayed on track, and effective stakeholder communication meant all parties worked together to achieve the successful and timely completion of the project.
