HEALTHY EATING REACHING NEW HEIGHTS WITH ETIHAD AIRWAYS

Etihad Airways is leading the way for healthy airplane meals. It was the first airline in the middle east to offer a health-focussed menu.

The range of healthy food options were rolled out on-board long-haul flights (departing from Abu Dhabi), in first and business class, and in its lounges at Abu Dhabi International Airport. In December 2016, Etihad introduced Weqaya food items to restaurants in its headquarters, further highlighting its commitment to the health and well-being of its employees.
