The Residence by Etihad has revealed its first passenger and it is Mr Gino Bertuccio, a Miami based entrepreneur and airline enthusiast.

Dannii Minogue described The Residence as ‘the most luxurious living space in the air’ and for good reason. Here’s what Mr Bertuccio can expect from this exceptional inflight experience:

  • An exclusive 3-room private cabin with a living room, double bedroom and en-suite shower room

  • Savoy academy butler who will be on call throughout the flight

  • A personal concierge to ensure everything runs smoothly before he boards and on arrival at his final destination

Etihad’s inaugural flight will take off from Abu Dhabi International Airport on the 27th of December and land at London’s Heathrow. Mr. Bertuccio is not new to inaugural flights; he booked his first 25 years ago and he’s an avid collector of model planes.

“For the first time in my flying experience, I really don’t know what to expect but I do know that flying in the Residence by Etihad will be a truly unique adventure, the top of luxury. I have huge expectations. My only wish is that the flight was longer,” said Mr. Bertuccio.
