Etihad adds MicrobeBARRIER

Etihad Airways has launched innovative new protective wear for First and Business class guests in a collaboration with Buzz.

The face covering is part of the airline’s new health and hygiene programme, Etihad Wellness, and sees premium passengers receive a snood style facemask for use throughout their journey and beyond.

The soft reusable snood has been treated with MicrobeBARRIER fabric treatment, a broad spectrum antimicrobial treatment, laboratory tested and proven to reduce the presence of germs in fabrics. With this long-lasting protective layer, the snoods are washable and reusable, adding to their environmentally-friendly credentials.

Travellers can choose to wear the snood around their neck like a scarf and when in close proximity to others, pull it up over their mouth and nose to protect themselves and those around them.

Made out of lightweight, breathable and stretchy jersey fabric, the snood is comfortable to wear and easily slipped on and off as needed.
