Etihad to distribute Ramadan boxes to those affected by Covid-19

Posted 27 April 2020 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways has launched the Etihad Ramadan Box initiative to bring Iftar meals to homes across the UAE.

 

The airline has partnered with Zomato, the world’s largest restaurant search and discovery platform and one of the UAE's largest food delivery apps, to deliver these meals to those affected by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) including hospitals, essential workers, volunteers and communities in need.

 

Those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, through sickness or financial impact, can request one of the Etihad Ramadan Boxes through the Zomato app, and a freshly prepared meal will be delivered directly from Etihad’s Catering facility in Abu Dhabi.

 

Robin Kamark, chief commercial officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “Ramadan is a traditional time for gathering with friends and family, but with the impact of COVID-19, this year it is more challenging to do so. In these extraordinary times, we wanted to bring a touch of our signature inflight hospitality to our local community and recognise the incredible efforts of the UAE’s medical staff and essential workers.

 

As well as the ready prepared meals delivered by Zomato, selected volunteers, healthcare and key workers will also receive a box filled with fresh ingredients and an easy to follow recipe. These Etihad Ramadan Boxes offer the opportunity to create themed cuisine from around the world easily at home and have been designed and curated by Etihad Airways’ world-class Inflight Chefs.

 

Kamark adds: “Our Inflight Chefs come from all over the world bringing a wide range of cuisines and cooking traditions into the mix. This diversity is celebrated in the Etihad Ramadan Boxes which will showcase a range of international flavours ready to be enjoyed at home.”
