Etihad Airways Concludes Five Day Celebration for Saudi National Day

Etihad Airways marked this year’s Saudi National Day with a special Year of Zayed A380 flight between Abu Dhabi and Jeddah. The aircraft was deployed on flight EY311 from Abu Dhabi to Jeddah yesterday ( 24th Sept) as the lead highlight in the airline’s five-day Saudi National Day celebrations.

The A380 was welcomed by a traditional water cannon salute followed by a customary display of the Saudi and UAE flags from the cockpit windows. In a fitting tribute to the special bond between the two countries, the flight crew operating the aircraft included Captain Ahmed Almalood, Emirati, and Senior First Officer Wesam Sameer Al Najjar, the first Saudi National A380 pilot in the world.
