Etihad Airways has launched innovative new protective wear, including snood – styled facemasks, for First and Business class guests as part of its new health and hygiene programme, Etihad Wellness.
The UAE airline‘s business and first class passengers will receive a snood – style facemask for use throughout their journey and beyond. The soft reusable snood has been treated with MicrobeBARRIER fabric treatment, a broad-spectrum antimicrobial treatment, laboratory tested and proven to reduce the presence of germs in fabrics. With this long-lasting protective layer, the snoods are washable and reusable, making them environmentally friendly.
Travellers can choose to wear the snood around their neck like a scarf and when in close proximity to others, pull it up over their mouth and nose to protect themselves and those around them.
Made out of lightweight, breathable, and stretchy jersey fabric, the mask is comfortable and ideal for travel because it can be easily slipped on and off as needed.
The new masks are part of the overall Etihad Wellness initiative, an expanded and more comprehensive health and hygiene programme and customer guide. This builds on the stringent measures already put in place by the airline to deal with COVID-19. The programme will be championed by the introduction of specially trained Wellness Ambassadors, a first in the industry, who will provide essential travel health information and care so guests can fly with greater peace of mind.
