Etihad Airways is now giving all of its First and
Business Class passengers what it describes as "a snood-style
facemask" for use throughout the flight and beyond.
The facemask is part of Etihad's 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.
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 and ideal for travel
because it can be easily slipped on and off as needed.
