Etihad Airways and ADNOC celebrate 89th Saudi National Day with special livery

Posted 23 September 2019 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways, in partnership with the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) – is celebrating the leadership and people of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) on the 89th National Day of the Kingdom.

 

To mark the occasion, the airline will launch a series of bespoke aircraft liveries paying tribute to ADNOC’s key international trading markets, industry partners and destinations served by the airline. This joint initiative celebrates ADNOC’s and Etihad’s robust international trade relationships and the rich diplomatic and cultural ties that the UAE has forged with nations around the world. The first livery is a special Saudi Arabian-inspired Boeing Dreamliner 787-9 on EY317 and EY318 between Abu Dhabi and Riyadh. 

Ahmed Al Qubaisi, senior vice president Government, International and Communications, Etihad Aviation Group said: “The UAE has experienced unprecedented growth and development in the last 50 years and is now a global leader in aviation. Etihad, its pioneering national airline, together with major Abu Dhabi partners such as ADNOC, represent the best of what Abu Dhabi has to offer to the world. As forces for positive growth and development in the markets we serve, we share a responsibility to ensure that these relationships are nurtured for the benefit of everyone. This striking livery represent this pledge.”

The bespoke livery celebrates the UAE’s close historical ties with Saudi Arabia, through an Islamic calligraphic and Mashrabiya latticework design in the Kingdom’s national colours.
