Etihad Airways

In light of the heartbreaking Beirut explosion, Etihad Airways, in cooperation with the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, has transported 16 tonnes of aid from the government of the UAE to Lebanon.

Highlighting the carrier’s commitment to helping those in need, the aid was flown in by an Etihad Airways Boeing 777 aircraft on August 6, 2020.

In recent months, the United Arab Emirates aid programme supported by Etihad Airways, has also assisted more than one-million medical workers spanning the globe by supplying personal protective equipment (PPE), medical and food aid in support of the fight against COVID-19.
