Abu Dhabi airline also says first humanitarian freighter will start flights in May
Etihad Airways has officially launched its Year of Zayed A380 aircraft as part of initiatives taking place this year which are inspired by the UAE's founding father.
Sheikh Theyab bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, chairman of Abu Dhabi Department of Transport, has inspected the specially-designed A380 at Etihad Airways Engineering’s facilities in Abu Dhabi.
The A380 in Year of Zayed livery is just one component of Etihad’s extensive initiatives taking place throughout 2018 which are based on the four themes of wisdom, respect, sustainability, and human development.
Guests travelling on this aircraft will enjoy a host of content and services inspired by the late Sheikh Zayed, including themed inflight entertainment, kids packs and a photo gallery of his life.
Etihad said another initiative, the Year of Zayed humanitarian freighter, is set to conduct its first flights for charitable organisations in May.For all the latest transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
