Etihad to stage fly pasts marking National Day

posted on 01/12/2013: 2120 views



Etihad Airways is marking the 42nd UAE National Day on December 2, in the air, on the ground, and in cyberspace.

There will be two fly pasts, first at the tenth Al Ain Aerobatic Show, where visitors will be treated to a fly past of an Etihad Airways Airbus A330-200 aircraft at 3.50pm local time.

In the same afternoon, another fly past will take place along the Abu Dhabi Corniche at 4.15pm local time.

Also on National Day, three Etihad Airways' branded buses emblazoned with the words ‘Flying the colours of the UAE' will take part in a Yas Island carnival parade. Manned by Etihad Airways cabin crew, the celebratory buses will distribute flags along the route.

On social media, Etihad Airways will launch a UAE National Day Instagram car decoration competition, encouraging UAE residents to include an element of the airline in their festive automobile decorations.

Hareb Al Muhairy, Etihad Airways' vice-president UAE, said: "As the national carrier of this great country, we are committed to carrying the ‘Spirit of the Union' message wherever we fly.

"For the airline's more than 17,000 staff, from 138 countries, UAE National Day also provides an opportunity for everyone to reflect and celebrate their own contribution to building the UAE.”

Etihad Airways' Abu Dhabi headquarters will be illuminated in the national colours of the UAE throughout the period of National Day celebrations. In addition, a large 40-metre UAE flag has been draped on one of the company's HQ buildings, and is currently visible from the air and to drivers on the main Abu Dhabi-Dubai Highway. – Khaleej Times
