The airline has collaborated with the youngest Emirati chef, an author, ice-skater, artists, and musical performers to curate unique works to commemorate the special anniversary.


“We’ve taken the UAE’s 50th Anniversary to our heart and challenged ourselves to work in conjunction with Emirati talent to showcase the unique spirit of the UAE to the world,” Amina Taher, vice president brand, marketing and sponsorships, Etihad Airways, explained.


“As the second phase of our year-long UAE 50 celebration, the project aims to raise the profile of the UAE as a hotspot for culture and art. Each expressionist will spotlight one of the UAE’s values of inclusion, resilience, honesty, creativity, inspiration and passion. We hope these heart-warming collaborations will inspire future creators and elevate Abu Dhabi and the UAE’s place on the world’s culture-map,” she continued.


Aysha Al Obeidli, 13, dubbed ‘the youngest Emirati chef’, has taken social media by storm after being crowned KidZania Dubai’s 2018 Minichef. Aysha and Etihad have formed an inclusive collaboration to create a delicious dessert to be served with Etihad’s children’s meals on flights over the UAE’s National Day weekend.
