Etihad Airways opens nursery
ABU DHABI, September 4, 2014
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, has opened a unique aviation-themed nursery in Abu Dhabi.
The new nursery joins a range of services provided to Etihad Airways’ employees to support their welfare and well-being, including the recently launched ambulance service, a full-service medical centre, accommodation assistance and education support.
The Etihad Airways nursery was officially opened by Ray Gammell, Etihad Airways’ chief people and performance officer, and is located directly opposite to the airline’s head office at Etihad Plaza.
“Etihad Airways is a people business and our people are our number one priority. The new on-site nursery will provide the highest quality of care for the children, while helping our working parents and their families to balance the roles and responsibilities of parenting with the demands of full-time work.
“This initiative reflects our ongoing commitment to the well-being of our employees and their families, to provide them with the best-in-class support services,” Gammell said.
As well as a nursery, the facility also operates an out-of-hours ‘stay and play’ crèche service, allowing parents to leave their children in expert care during both the working week and weekends.
The Etihad Airways Nursery is operated by the Kids Academy, a multi-award winning child care provider with more than 14 years of experience across the UK and UAE. – TradeArabia News Service
