Etihad Airways has launched the Etihad Ramadan Box initiative to bring Iftar meals to people across the UAE. The airline has partnered with Zomato to deliver meals to those affected by the novel coronavirus, including hospitals, essential service providers, volunteers and communities in need.
“This Ramadan is unlike any most of us can remember. So, while the world is out of reach, we’re reaching out a little closer to home, and giving back to those we’re thankful for during this time. Introducing the #EtihadRamadanBox,” the airlines tweeted.
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. All you need to do is log on to Zomato, select the box and as you proceed to checkout, just add the promo code: ETIHAD.
The meals will be delivered via Zomato or selected volunteers, and the healthcare professionals and other key frontliners 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’ Inflight Chefs.
These chefs are also offering their culinary expertise in a series of cooking demonstrations featured in the Etihad@Home series on the airline’s social media handles. They are also demonstrating quick and easy-to-make recipes to bring tastes from around the world to the comfort of your home. You can access these videos by visiting @etihadairways on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
In another initiative, to keep its customer entertained while they are quarantined at home, the airline’s inflight nanny Shanelle has been uploading videos of some fun art and craft activities. “We love it when our little guests are entertained, onboard or at home. Shanelle, our in-flight nanny is here with a fun arts and crafts activity for the tiny tots. Are you ready?” Etihad Airways tweeted.
