Etihad has introduced onboard nanny services.
We are delighted to announce the introduction of our Flying Nanny on all long-haul flights, a dedicated childcare assistance programme offered onboard and on the ground to provide families with an extra helping hand when travelling with children.
All Etihad Flying Nannies are cabin crew members who have received additional training from Norland College, the world leader in training childcare professionals.
Our Flying Nanny, dressed in a distinguishable bright orange apron, will:
- Begin assisting you right from the boarding gate, all the way until you and your family are comfortably seated on the plane
- Help onboard with the preparation of bassinets for babies
- Look after unaccompanied minors
- Keep children entertained while you’re enjoying a nap, in-flight meal or entertainment
Now with our Flying Nanny onboard, you can rest assured that help is available when travelling with children on all long-haul flights.

Etihad, of course, also has an onboard chef concept in first class. It just underscores for me how much a properly staffed contingent of flight attendants can do to make a journey more comfortable. They aren’t there merely “primarily for your safety” though of course they are there for your safety, too. (And the great work of the flight attendants onboard Asiana 214 on the ground in San Francisco suggests I think that it is possible to do both.)
Etihad has a redemption partnership with American AAdvantage. 50,000 miles or a Citibank AAdvantage credit card goes a long way towards the 67,500 miles each way that American charges for business class to the Middle East and India.
