Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, is making available cargo space on all of its flights to Asia over the next week for use by the Red Crescent Society to send urgent relief to the countries affected.



Etihad will send 18 flights weekly to Colombo, Mumbai, Bangkok and New Delhi and will transfer of humanitarian aid including food and other supplies, as well as transferring Red Crescent staff directly to Colombo.



"Everyone at Etihad here in Abu Dhabi and across the world is deeply concerned about all those whose lives have been devastated by Sunday's earthquake and tsunami disaster. We are looking at every possible way in which we can assist in the areas to which we fly across Asia and have been consulting with our local offices there on the best ways we can contribute,' said Etihad Chairman H.E. Dr. Ahmed Bin Saif Al Nahyan. 'Etihad is also making available passenger space to aid agencies in Europe for this purpose.' (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
