About Etihad Airways

Etihad Airways has come a long way in a small time and is now the flag carrier and the second-largest airline of the United Arab Emirates. It was established by the Royal (Emiri) Decree in July 2003 and wholly owned by the Government of Abu Dhabi with a mandate to operate safely, commercially and profitably. The airline offers its guests a network of over 110 passenger and cargo destinations across six continents, with a young and environmental friendly fleet of more than 120 aircrafts. Etihad is also one of five key business divisions of the Etihad Aviation Group (EAG). The diversified global aviation and travel group also includes the Etihad Airways Engineering, Etihad Airport Services, the Hala Group and Airline Equity Partners. Etihad's guests are at the heart of everything it does and its vision is to be the best airline in the world, connecting Abu Dhabi to the rest of the globe. The airline seeks to reflect its values of Arabian hospitality and warmth as well as enhance the reputation of Abu Dhabi as a world-class business and leisure destination.

About Kuwait (KWI)

Kuwait, officially known as the State of Kuwait, is a country on the western front of Asia. The name itself is derived from the Arabic word “Kut,” which literally translates to fortification. Until the eighteenth century, it was not a permanent settlement but a mere home to nomads. The reason Kuwait came to be was the conditions of drought that pushed nomadic clans to settle along the coast of the Arabian Gulf. These tribes built forts to protect themselves from other nomads, and hence, the country’s name came into existence.

The affluent nature of the state is only a recent discovery, when in 1934, Kuwait oil reserves were discovered. These reserves are the sixth largest in the world. Apart from oil, the country’s currency itself, the Kuwaiti Dinar, is the most expensive currency in the world. The golden period of the country was from 1946 to 1982. 1961 was the year when the country gained its independence. It is the first gulf country to have an established constitution. When one visits Kuwait, they see a very different side of life from that in the other gulf countries; Kuwait is a progressive city, which has a lot to offer to the curious traveller. One of the most enticing things about Kuwait is the delicacy named “Machboos” – a rice-based dish garnished with spices and meat, made from the best quality basmati rice – and certainly a must-have on your list of things to try in Kuwait.
