UAE’s Etihad vows to deliver 150,000 meals per year to charity


Etihad Aviation Group has launched a community programme that will deliver 400 meals per day to charity.

The initiative will be held throughout 2018 and beyond, with approximately 150,000 meals to be donated every year, the company said in a statement.



The Abu Dhabi-based airline has teamed up with the Grace Conservation Programme of Emirates Red Crescent and Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority to donate inflight meals to labourer residences in the Mussaffah area of Abu Dhabi.

In line with the 2018 Year of Zayed, the initiative was announced in early Ramadan to promote a spirit of sharing during the holy month.

The meals are initially prepared for the airline’s three on board cabins – First Class, Business Class and Economy Class – and are then transported in a purpose-designed truck to keep them fresh.

Emirates Red Crescent will provide an equipped kitchen and trucks to collect and store meals for distribution.

Khaled AlMehairbi, senior vice president and general manager Etihad Airport Services Ground – Abu Dhabi Hub and CSR Strategy, said:

“We are strongly committed to the local community and proudly support various charities worldwide. Etihad is always looking at new ways to extend the reach of our charitable and humanitarian efforts.



“This drive is guided by the values and legacy of our late founding father Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. He inspires and motivates us to share and give back to the communities we are living and operating in.”
