Etihad Airways has launched a service to provide airport transfers to passengers globally.

The new initiative has taken off following a partnership with SIXT, an international mobility service provider.

Customers can now book the extra transfer service online for their flight via immediately after purchasing an airline ticket or even up to one hour in advance.

The new service covers various car categories from limousines to SUVs - all operated by professional chauffeurs.

Jamal Al Awadhi, Etihad Airways vice president product and guest experience, said: “This new service enhancement provides a seamless transportation experience for our guests from their home to the airport and then upon arrival at their destination.”

There are currently over one million trained SIXT drivers worldwide.

Vinzenz Pflanz, president corporate sales, SIXT SE, added: "I'm delighted we are expanding our strategic partnership to jointly offer our customers additional travel benefits. Our companies are not only two strong brands in the travel and tourism industry, we also operate globally across Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and North America."
