Etihad Airways is marking its 15th anniversary of operation by holding a series of events and initiatives in Abu Dhabi and around the globe, beginning with the unveiling of an exclusive collaboration with iconic New York fashion designer, Diane von Furstenberg.

The UAE national airline currently operates a next-generation fleet of over 110 modern Boeing and Airbus aircraft, flying to 84 passenger and cargo destinations. Over the span of 15 years, Etihad Airways has operated over 840,000 passenger flights and has carried 139 million guests globally, served by a dedicated workforce of over 22,000 talented individuals hailing from over 150 countries.

The partnership with Diane von Furstenberg has seen the creation of limited edition cabin crew scarves and ties, which were introduced at a star-studded event at the spectacular Louvre Abu Dhabi. The stylish new accessories will be worn by the airline’s cabin crew throughout the month of November to celebrate its 15-year anniversary and its 10-year partnership with the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

There are three distinguished patterns for the various cabin crew positions on board, chosen to match the airline’s colour pallet: bold yellow for cabin managers, purple for cabin crew and white for Food and Beverage Managers.

Diane Von Furstenberg, the designer, said: “Formula 1 is such an elegant event and I was thrilled to collaborate with Etihad Airways on this exciting project. The geometric pattern was inspired by the Yas Marina Circuit and there are so many layers of meaning to the colours. Purple is the colour of royalty and the orange is inspired by the beautiful hues of the desert sand at sunset. I hope the cabin crew feels very proud to wear the scarves and ties. They reflect everything Etihad is about: elegance and style.”
