Etihad Airways World’s First Airline to Vaccinate 100% of Cabin Crew and Pilots

(10 Feb 2021)
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United
Arab Emirates, has become the first airline in the world to have
vaccinated all its operating pilots and cabin crew against
COVID19.

This remarkable achievement was made possible through
Etihad’s ‘Protected Together’ employee vaccination initiative
which was formally launched in January of this year.

Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer,
Etihad Aviation Group, said, “We proactively made the vaccine
available to all our employees to not only help combat the effects
of COVID19 but to make travellers feel confident and reassured
the next time they fly with us. We are the only airline in the
world to make COVID19 testing mandatory for every passenger and
crew member before every flight and now, we’re the first airline
in the world with 100% vaccinated crew on board.


“I chose very early on to be vaccinated to
demonstrate my own support of the national vaccination programme
and to encourage everyone at Etihad who was eligible for the
vaccine, to receive it as soon as possible. I would like to thank
the entire Etihad family for everything they have done to help us
reach this milestone – I am truly humbled.”

Following the UAE Government’s target to vaccinate
half of the UAE population by the end of March 2021, Etihad is
ahead of schedule with over 75% of its entire workforce already
having received at least one dose of the vaccine. This figure will continue to grow as more employees
step forward and choose to vaccinate.

Dr. Nadia Bastaki, Vice President Medical Services
and CSR, Etihad Aviation Group, said, “Following the national
vaccination programme, we worked tirelessly to become an approved
COVID19 vaccination clinic to support our staff, and their dependants, be able to easily access the vaccine. Since December
2020, we have been offering in-house vaccination appointments to
our employees and their loved ones to ensure we are focused on our
employee’s wellbeing.”
