Etihad Airways has introduced a snood style face mask for its first and business class guests, as part of its new health and hygiene programme, Etihad Wellness.
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, making them environmentally friendly.
Made out of lightweight, breathable and stretchy jersey fabric, the snood can be worn around the neck like a scarf and be easily slipped on and off to cover one’s mouth and nose as needed.
The MicrobeBarrier treated snood is one of the many initiatives the airline has introduced to create a healthier and cleaner environment.
