Orlando Bloom, Margot Robbie and Jessie J join star-studded party in Abu Dhabi
British Airways celebrated the launch of its new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and the new daily London-Abu Dhabi-Muscat service on Friday by hosting a secret island party with a star studded line up.
Australian actress Margot Robbie and fellow Hollywood star Orlando Bloom flew in for an exclusive VIP party on Zaya Nurai Island, just off the coast Abu Dhabi.
Jessie said it was her first time visiting Abu Dhabi and that she had been hugely impressed by the new aircraft. She said: “I love Abu Dhabi and am excited to have been able to perform for the people who have helped me travel around the world with my music safely and comfortably. What I love even better - my bed tonight will be on the new 787-9 British Airways plane!”
Wolf of Wall Street actress Margot Robbie - who stars as Harley Quinn in the hotly anticipated cinematic adaptation of cult graphic novel, Suicide Squad - told guests she had fallen in love with the city. She added: “I’ve only been in Abu Dhabi for a day or so but it is a place of beautiful contrasts. I visited the desert yesterday and the vast tranquillity of that landscape is the opposite of the cosmopolitan modernity of the city – it is a beautiful place.”
Orlando Bloom also took to the stage to hail the new 787-9 and spoke of his love for Abu Dhabi. “Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved to travel. There’s nothing quite like the luxury of the new First cabin on British Airways. I’m sure it will be warmly received by British Airways’ passengers in Abu Dhabi. I have no doubt that travellers will love it,” he said.
Also in attendance was Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden, who appears alongside Jessie J on The Voice Australia. Sources tell us he’s now managing her, hence him accompanying her to the event.
