Etihad Airways has collaborated with the Abu Dhabi department of health to introduce ‘Weqaya,’ a range of healthy food items, on-board its flights and in its lounges in the emirate.
Weqaya, meaning ‘prevention,’ is a programme established by department with the aim of encouraging people to eat a healthy and balanced diet to promote good health and wellbeing.
Mohammad Al Bulooki, executive vice president commercial, Etihad Airways, said: “Etihad consistently engages with its guests to better understand their needs, and then delivers products and services that exceeds their expectations.
“The addition of Weqaya menu items further enhances our food and beverage offering and is a testimony to our airline’s commitment to continue to provide premium products to our guests.”
Starting in April, Etihad Airways will begin to offer a number of dishes on menus in first and business class long-haul and ultra-long haul outbound flights from Abu Dhabi, as well as in its lounges in Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Last year, Etihad introduced Weqaya food items to restaurants in its headquarters, further highlighting its commitment to the health and well-being of its employees.
