New protective wear for Etihad’s first and business class travellers

Etihad Airways

Dedicated to guaranteeing the safety of its customers, Etihad Airways has introduced innovative new protective wear for travellers in first and business class.

Forming part of its new health and hygiene programme, Etihad Wellness, premium passengers will now acquire a snood style facemask for use throughout their journey and beyond.

The soft reusable snood has been made using a MicrobeBARRIER fabric treatment – a broad-spectrum antimicrobial treatment, which is proven to reduce the presence of germs in fabrics. The innovative snoods are washable and reusable.

First and business class passengers can choose to wear the snood around their neck like a scarf and when in close proximity to others, can pull it up over their mouth and nose to protect themselves and those around them.

The snood, which is made from lightweight, breathable and stretchy jersey fabric, is comfortable and ideal for travel because it can be easily slipped on and off as needed.
