Etihad Airways has launched new protective wear for First and Business class guests. As part of its new health and hygiene programme, Etihad Wellness, premium passengers will receive a snood style face mask for use throughout their journey and beyond.
The soft reusable snood has been treated with MicrobeBARRIER fabric treatment, a broad spectrum antimicrobial treatment, which is laboratory tested and proven to reduce the presence of germs in fabrics. The protective layer is long-lasting, and the snoods are washable and reusable, making them environmentally-friendly.
Travellers can choose to wear the snood around their neck like a scarf and when in close proximity to others, pull it up over their mouth and nose to protect themselves and those around them.
The snood is made out of lightweight, breathable and stretchy jersey fabric, which makes it comfortable to wear during travel, as it can be easily slipped on and off as needed.
Etihad says that the safety, health, and wellbeing of guests is its top priority, during and beyond the flight. The MicrobeBARRIER treated snood is one of the many initiatives the airline has introduced to create a healthier and cleaner environment.The circumstances surrounding COVID-19 are continuously evolving.
