etihad-airwaysPassengers travelling by Etihad Airways from New York to Abu Dhabi were treated to a surprise celebration of Diwali ahead of this weekend’s Hindu festival of lights.

 

Travelling on one of the airline’s flagship Airbus A380s, they were given specially designed lanterns to mark the festival that this year falls on 30 October. As lights in First, Business and Economy were dimmed, guests of all ages raised their glowing lanterns transforming the cabins into a sea of glimmering lights to celebrate Diwali in the sky. Traditional Indian desserts such as jalebi and barfi prepared by Etihad Airways’ catering team were served onboard.

 

Guests flying onwards to Mumbai, via Abu Dhabi, were also treated to celebratory lanterns, sweets and goody bags upon arrival at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport that helped brighten their journey home. Guests also have a chance during this festive period to win tickets to a destination of their choice by posting pictures at #Diwaliinthesky of their celebrations at home or in the air.

 

Diwali spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and hope over despair. Its celebration includes tens of millions of homes, temples and other buildings being lit up in the communities and countries where the festivities are observed.
