ABU DHABI, 22nd May, 2018 (WAM) — Etihad Aviation Group has announced the launch 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.

As part of its sustainability and corporate social responsibility efforts, 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 project is aligned with the sustainability pillar of the Year of Zayed. 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.
