Gone are the days of stepping off a 16-hour flight looking & feeling like someone who accidentally took a spin in a washing cycle. Well, that’s the aim with Etihad’s new jet lag app.

Etihad teamed up with Panasonic (Panasonic Avionics Corporation) to trial a wellness solution app that specialises in reducing the ever-exhausting jet lag.

Appropriately named the ‘Jet Lag Adviser’, the solution uses passenger data such as chronotype, circadian rhythms, height, weight, nature of travel and travel information to produce a personalised plan that’ll help combat jet lag.


The solution will be integrated into the existing Etihad passenger app and will deliver users information such as things they can do to reduce flight-related sleepiness during the pre-flight, flight and post-flight phases, as well as a schedule of sleep, exercise, hydration and food recommendation.

Throughout each phase of the travel experience, the Jet Lag Adviser will send reminders with recommended actions to passengers via the app. By following the recommended advisories, the Jet Lag Adviser will help passengers feel more energetic and ready for their activities at their destination.


Etihad Aviation Group Chief Commercial Officer, Robin Kamark, said the airline is excited to be able to use artificial intelligence to improve the travel experience for each guest.

“This will be the first of many wellness initiatives we will explore together, and we are excited about our partnership with Panasonic and the possibilities that lie ahead.”

Panasonic is also exploring further innovative wellness technologies with Etihad as the carrier readies itself to move to the new ‘Midfield Terminal’ at Abu Dhabi International Airport, where new technology features are set to significantly enhance the passenger experience.
