UAE airline Etihad Airways has launched the Etihad Ramadan Box and has partnered with food delivery platform Zomato to deliver those Iftar meals across the UAE.

Those who will receive the Ramadan meal boxes include hospitals, healthcare and essential workers, volunteers, communities in need and others impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic in the country.

Via the Zomato app, anyone who has been medically or financially impacted by the virus can also request for the box which will be delivered from the airline’s catering facility in Abu Dhabi.

“Whether a person is sick, recently lost their job, or simply needs a helping hand, the Etihad Ramadan Boxes are offered purely on trust, and are a gesture of goodwill at this challenging time. We are proud to be working with Etihad Airways on this,” said Karl Baz, regional director at Zomato.

Apart from the ready meals, selected volunteers, healthcare and key workers will also receive a box filled with fresh ingredients and an easy to follow recipe designed by Etihad’s chefs, allowing the recipients to cook the meals themselves.

“Ramadan is a traditional time for gathering with friends and family, but with the impact of Covid-19, this year it is more challenging to do so. In these extraordinary times, we wanted to bring a touch of our signature inflight hospitality to our local community and recognise the incredible efforts of the UAE’s medical staff and essential workers,” said Robin Kamark, CCO at Etihad Aviation Group.

“Our Inflight Chefs come from all over the world bringing a wide range of cuisines and cooking traditions into the mix. This diversity is celebrated in the Etihad Ramadan Boxes which will showcase a range of international flavours ready to be enjoyed at home,” added Karmak.

A statement from the airline added that Etihad’s inflight 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 channels.

On April 26, the airline said that it has extended the suspension of regular passenger flights until Saturday, May 16.
