Meet the people who inspire us

At Etihad Airways, we often come across special individuals who share our passion and drive. Many are guests of the airline who enjoy our hospitality on a regular basis.

What makes them unique is that they often reflect the values that make us the World’s Leading Airline.


These are remarkable men and women who follow their aspirations and excel across a range of interests; inspiring the world through entertainment, arts, sports, fashion, cuisine and travel. They journey across the globe to share their craft with a new generation of enthusiasts. And when they do, they travel with us.

Now we have invited them to join us as Etihad Guest Ambassadors. Together, we strive to create remarkable experiences for all our guests – on board, on the ground and for members of our Etihad Guest loyalty programme. This month, we venture into Luke Nguyen’s world of flavours and see what delectable dishes he’s serving up for you in-flight. We ask him how his favourite street food from the bustling heart of Etihad’s newest destination, Ho Chi Minh City, inspires him to create some of his most remarkable culinary creations.
