The #StandbyAUH campaign showcases the range of employees and stakeholder staff working at the airport during the Covid-19 outbreak.

A campaign has been launched by the Abu Dhabi Airports to recognise the efforts of its employees at the Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH).

The #StandbyAUH campaign showcases the range of employees and stakeholder staff working at the airport during the Covid-19 outbreak. Frontline employees from Abu Dhabi Airports and Etihad Airways, as well as teams from the Abu Dhabi Police, customs, immigration and rescue and fire response are working 24/7 to enable essential operations, supporting citizens and residents across the country and facilitating repatriation flights and the delivery of humanitarian aid to countries around the world.

The campaign invites the public to stand by those who are continuing to operate the UAE capital's vital aviation infrastructure. The #StandbyAUH campaign can be found on Abu Dhabi Airports' social media pages, @AUH on Twitter, and @abudhabiairport on Instagram.

"We are proud of our operational crews, who are continuing to complete significant and vital work that allows the airport to continue operating during these difficult times," said Shareef Al Hashmi, acting chief executive officer of Abu Dhabi Airports.

"Through this campaign, we seek to highlight the professionalism, passion, and the dedication which our employees have demonstrated during this pandemic," he added.

Mohammad Al Bulooki, chief operating officer of the Etihad Aviation Group, said: "Aviation is critical to Abu Dhabi and the UAE, and throughout this challenging period, Etihad Airways has played a vital role in helping to bring UAE nationals home, repatriate foreign residents, and continue to carry essential food, medical and other supplies into the country.

"The airline has relied heavily upon the continued dedication not only of aircrew and planning teams, but also employees who are based at the Abu Dhabi International Airport who work to maintain and handle aircraft, facilitate guests and manage the vast consignments of vital cargo arriving for the nation, or being sent elsewhere," he added.
