Pre­sented in close col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Na­tional Ar­chive, Abu Dhabi Air­ports and Depart­ment of Abu Dhabi Cus­toms are host­ing a mo­bile photo ex­hi­bi­tion of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sul­tan Al Nahyan at Abu Dhabi In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

Ac­ces­si­ble in the land­side area of Ter­mi­nal 1 from the 6 – 11 Septem­ber 2018, the photo ex­hi­bi­tion was one of the many so­cial ini­tia­tives in­tro­duced as part of Abu Dhabi Air­ports’ Year of Zayed pro­gramme.

“Through this mo­bile ex­hi­bi­tion at Abu Dhabi In­ter­na­tional Air­port, we seek to hon­our the vi­sion and legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed by show­cas­ing his life, the im­pact he has had on the UAE as a whole, and in the avi­a­tion in­dus­try in par­tic­u­lar,” said Mo­hammed Al Katheeri, SVP Strat­egy & Com­mu­ni­ca­tions at Abu Dhabi Air­ports.

“Sheikh Zayed laid the foun­da­tions of the seven emi­rates with a fo­cus on in­no­va­tion and de­vel­op­ment. He fore­saw Abu Dhabi hav­ing the world-class avi­a­tion in­fras­truc­ture that it does to­day.”

As part of its Year of Zayed pro­gramme, the air­port has launched sev­eral ini­tia­tives to hon­our the legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed. This in­cluded the un­veil­ing of a com­mem­o­ra­tive im­mi­gra­tion stamp at Abu Dhabi In­ter­na­tional Air­port, which was done in close col­lab­o­ra­tion with Air­port Im­mi­gra­tion.

Also launched this past year was the Meir Al Khair cam­paign, which col­lected do­na­tions from Abu Dhabi Air­ports’ em­ploy­ees that were then used to pur­chase needed house­holds goods for less for­tu­nate fam­i­lies in the UAE in the lead up to the holy month of Ra­madan.

At the air­port it­self, the Year of Zayed logo was added to the Air Traf­fic Con­trol Tow­ers, while in a sep­a­rate ini­tia­tive, Flight of the Chil­dren of Zayed, saw the or­gan­i­sa­tion of a trip for 31 or­phans to visit Sir Bani Yas Is­land. The lat­ter was con­ducted in part­ner­ship with Emi­rates Red Cres­cent.

“The late Sheikh Zayed bin Sul­tan Al Nahyan was a vi­sion­ary and wel­com­ing leader. He en­cour­aged the con­tin­u­ous pur­suit of ex­cel­lence, trav­elled the world ex­ten­sively, and es­tab­lished the pol­icy of wel­com­ing in­ter­na­tional guests to the UAE,” said Fa­hed Gha­reeb Ab­dulla Ha­mad Al Shamsi, act­ing ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Ad­min­is­tra­tion at the Depart­ment of Abu Dhabi Cus­toms.

“It is in cel­e­bra­tion of his legacy that we worked to or­ga­nize this mo­bile photo ex­hi­bi­tion of his life and achieve­ments, and we hope to in­spire vis­i­tors from around the world to re­flect on Sheikh Zayed’s val­ues and prin­ci­pals.”

The Sheikh Zayed photo ex­hi­bi­tion was present a the land­side area of Ter­mi­nal 1 from 6 - 11 Septem­ber 2018.
