Over the coming weeks, Etihad will also introduce wellness ambassadors at Abu Dhabi International Airport in partnership with Abu Dhabi Airports, ensuring that the same levels of support are rendered at every point of the customer journey through the airport.

Abu Dhabi Airports meanwhile has launched a new CoDi BOT UGV (Unmanned Ground Vehicle) to aid in Covid-19 disinfection tasks at the airport.

The UGV has three central functions including targeting of virus strains on surfaces with controlled bursts of germicidal UV rays, screening of individuals through thermal infrared monitoring and disinfection of areas using liquid cleaning agents.

Also, Etihad is partnering with Australian company Elenium Automation to roll out a new early-warning system which uses self-service devices at Abu Dhabi airport to identify medically at-risk travellers, including passengers who are possibly in the early stages of having contracted the Covid-19 virus too.

The technology is capable of monitoring the temperature, heart rate and respiratory rate of a person using an airport touchpoint such as a check-in or information kiosk, a bag drop facility, a security point or an immigration gate. The system will alert staff on-site if need be, and the relevant authorities can then decide whether it is safe for the passenger to continue their journey.
