COVID-19: Etihad Introduces MicrobeBARRIER™ Protection
Etihad Airways has launched innovative new protective wear for First and Business class guests to help further help protect their guests from the #COVID19 pandemic.
As part of its new health and hygiene programme, Etihad Wellness, premium passengers will receive a snood style facemask for use throughout their journey and beyond.
The soft reusable snood has been treated with MicrobeBARRIER™ fabric treatment, a broad spectrum antimicrobial treatment proven to reduce the presence of germs in fabrics.
With this long-lasting protective layer, the snoods are washable and reusable, making them environmentally friendly.
Passengers 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.
Made out of lightweight, breathable and stretchy jersey fabric, the snood is comfortable and ideal for travel because it can be easily slipped on and off as needed.
Safety, health, and wellbeing of guests are Etihad’s top priority. The MicrobeBARRIER™ snood is one of the many initiatives the airline has introduced to create a healthier and cleaner environment.
