Etihad Airways will introduce a new program to help long-haul passengers sleep better in-flight. “We understand that sleep is an important requirement for our guests, many of whom fly multiple journeys with us each year,” Etihad Airways chief commercial officer Paul Baumgartner said. Etihad’s new program has been developed by ACPN clinical studies of its passenger sleep patterns and has resulted in a set of sleep guidelines being drawn up for passengers. The guidelines require the provision of COCO-MAT Diamond First Class mattress with multilayers for first class passengers and noise prevention headphones and mood lighting in all other classes. “For this reason, we will continue ensuring greater levels of comfort and wellbeing on our flights, Since 2012, Etihad has been collaborating with the American Centre for Psychiatry and Neurology (ACPN) in Abu Dhabi about how to improve passengers sleep. “The research we have carried out in collaboration with the experts at the ACPN will allow us to significantly improve the cabin environment for our guests and to provide targeted investment in our on-board experience for tangible customer benefit.” Source = ETB News: T.N.
