Etihad Airways sponsors major sports event in the United States


nation's triathlon

Etihad Airways’ first major sports sponsorship in the United States  commenced with the Nation’s Triathlon event in Washington D.C. on September 8. The sponsorship is in response to the new daily service between Abu Dhabi and Washington while seeking to promote sporting links between the two cities.

The sponsorship of the Nation’s Triathlon ties in with the airline’s existing sponsorship of the Tri Yas event in Abu Dhabi being held on February 28 , 2014. It encourages greater participation from triathletes wishing to take part in either race, with the development of tailored event packages that include the shipment of bikes, special hotel rates and event entry fees.
