The airline has launched a dedicated platform at etihad.com/uae50, and aims to engage the local community in its participative programme which will be revealed in detail throughout the year. Citizens, residents and guests of the UAE will have the chance to participate and win one of 50,000 prizes that will be given away throughout the course of the year.

 

Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “This year-long initiative demonstrates Etihad’s celebration of the past, and commitment to the next 50 years of this incredible country. As one of the UAE’s leading brands, Etihad is proud to bring the world to Abu Dhabi to be part of this celebration.”

 

The first project in this series of celebrations is the ‘legacy of a nation’ which charts the untold stories of the nation from the past 50 years. Etihad will be seeking out and curating personal accounts of life in the UAE, both past and present.

 

The second pillar of the programme is ‘values that unite’, where Etihad will collaborate with expressionists from different walks of life, to co-create work that commemorates this auspicious occasion.

 

The final phase of this campaign is headlined ‘hosting the world’. Hospitality is a very important part of Emirati culture and similarly is an intrinsic part of Etihad’s commitment to its guests. Etihad will encourage, support and facilitate individuals with hosting special visitors from around the world to experience the UAE’s warm welcome for themselves.

 

The 50,000 prizes range from free flights and bonus Etihad Guest Miles, to discount vouchers for experiences across Abu Dhabi, and will be awarded throughout the year.

 

The series of activities will run until 31 December 2021 and Etihad encourages people interested in winning prizes or participating in the programme, to visit etihad.com/uae50 to sign up for more information.
