As a sign of its attachment towards Geneva and Switzerland, its latest Airbus A330-200 has been decorated with the largest Swiss "cowbell" in the world.

At the Geneva International Airport, Kevin Steele, Head of World Sales, Etihad Airways, unveiled the largest Swiss cowbell in the world measuring two metres in height and three metres in diameter. "It is through this typically Swiss symbol that we would like to express our attachment to and our close links with Geneva and Switzerland," announced Steele. The giant cowbell was also accompanied by the "Cow Parade," currently being exhibited at Geneva International Airport.

Since 2 June 2005 Etihad Airways has been flying non-stop to Abu Dhabi from Geneva three times a week.

"This enables Etihad Airways passengers to gain two hours travelling time," said Steele.
