XOJET and Etihad To Push Boundaries of Elite Flying

By Paul Joseph

When Etihad Airways, the UAE’s second-largest airline, announced the Residence, its luxurious private cabin service, it marked a new level of luxury for high-end commercial aviation.

Now the airline has opened up its lavish offering to even more valued passengers by teaming up with private aviation company XOJET.

The partnership will allow current members of XOJET’s Preferred Access and Elite Access program to receive instant Gold Status when flying Etihad Airways and booking The Residence for the first time.

The Residence allows guests access to a private bedroom and bathroom, a chef and a butler, continuing when you’ve left the plane with chauffeur service and airside connections, a dedicated concierge service, and lounge access.

“As the leader in on-demand private jet charter, we were compelled to partner with the most elite commercial airline that shares our commitment to excellence in high-touch service,” said XOJET President & CEO, Brad Stewart.

“Etihad Airways has proven itself by setting new benchmarks within the aviation industry; we are thrilled to select Etihad Airways as our inaugural commercial airline partner.”

As part of the partnership, Etihad guests, upon landing in the U.S., will be able to access XOJET’s dedicated charter desk with 24/7 support and complimentary catering, as well as a promotional $2000 flight credit for first-time flyers.

This includes access to XOJET’s extensive fleet of Challenger 300 and Citation X jets—North America’s largest—as well as Preferred Partner Network of over 1,100 jets.
