The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) said on Sunday that it has reached an agreement with the Frontline Heroes Office (FHO) to allow registered frontline professionals free access to two key cultural sites in the capital emirate.

Eligible frontline workers include medical and non-medical staff in healthcare facilities (doctors, nurses, pharmacists, housekeeping, porters etc.), as well as those working in prevention and protection (crisis management, security and emergency services, sterilisation, volunteering, etc.).

“Art and medicine are linked by a shared higher purpose: the betterment of humanity,” said Saood Al Hosani, acting undersecretary of DCT Abu Dhabi.

“Many of our hardworking physicians, nurses, sterilisation specialists and other frontline professionals and volunteers have barely had a chance to slow down for the past eight months. To thank them for their dedication, it is our pleasure to offer complimentary access to two of DCT Abu Dhabi’s most spectacular cultural assets, a way of encouraging them to take some time to reflect, recharge, and reconnect with their creative sides,” added Al Hosani.

A number of other entities have partnered with the FHO recently to offer incentives to their registered members.

On Sunday, Etihad Airways said that FHO registered members are eligible for 15 per cent flights discounts and can access a special dedicated airport check-in area at Abu Dhabi International Airport.
