H.H. Sheikh Theyab bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Department of Transport, has inspected the specially-designed Etihad Airways' "Year of Zayed" A380 at Etihad Airways Engineering's facilities in Abu Dhabi.
H.H. Sheikh Theyab was joined by H.E. Mohamed Mubarak Fadhel Al Mazrouei, Chairman of Etihad Aviation Group, and Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Aviation Group, as well as members of the Etihad senior leadership team.
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 "Year of Zayed" 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. The first Etihad initiative, the "Year of Zayed" humanitarian freighter, is set to conduct its first flights for charitable organisations in May.
Following the visit to Etihad Airways Engineering, H.H. Sheikh Theyab and H.E. Mohamed Mubarak Fadhel Al Mazrouei travelled to Etihad's Innovation Centre in Abu Dhabi where they heard from senior Etihad executives about the airline's strategic plans for the future.
