Etihad plans $11,000 Grand Prix packages

As Abu Dhabi gears up for another season of racing action, hotels across the emirate are putting together luxury packages for visitors who want a piece of the action. This year, Abu Dhabi’s Grand Prix race featuring four nights accommodation at some of the UAE’s priciest hotels, are selling for upwards of Dh43,995 ($11,978). The hospitality packages from Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways target the wealthiest end of the travel market, and include a three-day Paddock Club ticket, a two-day pass to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, access to a post-race Amber Lounge Party and four nights at a five-star hotel. Flights are not included in the price tag. Hospitality analysts are expecting the interest to be high among the regions super-wealthy, despite the current economic climate. Prices for the four-night package at the Abu Dhabi-based Yas Hotel will set Formula One fans back Dh43,995 ($11,978) while the same deal with four nights at Dubai’s Burj Al Arab costs from Dh49,995 ($13,611).

While more packages are expected to start rolling out, to ensure the best seats, we recommend you start booking!
