Etihad Airways will celebrate the New Year in style onboard some of its flights. This is the first time that the airline will do something like this.

With over 1.5 million passengers expected to travel on Etihad over the winter break, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates will be celebrating the festive season in the sky with a special-themed menu and props for guests on board selected flights.

The special-themed menu includes festive favourites such as turkey roulade, chestnut stuffing and chocolate yule log with cherry compote. Over the festive period, the menu will be available from 23rd to 25th December 2022 on many routes including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Lebanon, South Korea, the Philippines, the Seychelles, South Africa, Australia, and most destinations across Europe.

For the first time, Etihad will be ushering in the New Year in style on its flights. On 31st December 2022, all flights crossing midnight in the sky will join in the countdown and celebrate the new year on board with customised fun props for passengers, as well as celebratory giveaways. Celebratory drinks will also be served in the moments before midnight.

Also, the airline’s E-BOX inflight entertainment will feature a dedicated ‘Holiday Movies’ channel including festive classics such as Love Actually and Home Alone, as well as themed TV programming and music for the season.
