Etihad Airways donates to Nepal communities

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has made a donation to two social welfare organizations in Katmandu as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) program in Nepal.
Staff from the airline’s head office in Abu Dhabi joined local colleagues to deliver care parcels, consisting of packed lunches and blankets, during visits to elderly citizens and children in need.
The two groups are in the care of the Prayas Nepals’ children’s home and Aamako Ghar, a non-profit organization founded by philanthropist Dil Shova Shrestha to help abandoned elderly people.
Etihad Airways Country Manager in Nepal Pawana Shrestha said: “Etihad Airways is committed to active participation in causes that assist people and communities across its global network. As winter is quickly approaching, we hope that our donation will assist the elderly citizens and young orphans brave the cold and bring a smile to their faces.”
Etihad Airways’ Head of CSR and Sustainability Anne Tullis said: “Etihad Airways’ corporate social responsibility program has expanded considerably in recent years along with our commitment to a CSR policy and plan that is wholly embedded in our business.”
“Our initiatives in Nepal are focused on supporting less fortunate communities, and in the longer term, driving development and empowerment that will allow communities to become self-sufficient.”

Genesis G70 arrives in the Middle East

Genesis has officially launched its compact G70 luxury sedan in Middle East markets, completing the brand’s core sedan lineup. Engineered as a dynamic car with strong appeal to younger customers and more enthusiastic drivers, the G70 joins the flagship G90 large sedan and mid-sized G80 and G80 Sport.

“Genesis has been very well received in the Middle East, and the Genesis G70 will be an exciting new chapter in our story,” said Altar Yilmaz, Genesis general manager for the Africa and Middle East region. “For many of our potential customers, this is the Genesis they have been waiting for.”

The arrival of the Genesis G70 in showrooms follows a previous display presentation at the Dubai International Motor Show in November 2017, where Genesis fielded a large number of inquiries about the car. With larger G80 and G90 models already growing a strong base of loyal customers, it is expected the compact model will add significantly to the brand’s appeal in the competitive Middle East luxury car market.

The G70 showcases the future direction of the Genesis brand’s “Athletic Elegance” design identity. 

“The G70’s interior is configured to prioritize an excellent user experience, with superb fit and finish throughout. The interior packaging reflects simplicity, with an emphasis on genuine functionality instead of gimmickry. A horizontal layout brings a sense of stability, with an intuitively laid-out switchgear and a comfortable, assertive sport steering wheel,” the carmaker said.

The G70 offers two powertrains in the Middle East region — a 3.3-liter V6 petrol turbo and 2.0-liter I4 petrol turbo.  The Lambda II 3.3-liter V6 turbo GDI engine is the heart of the enthusiast-focused G70 Sport, with 370 ps and maximum torque of 52.0 kg.m (510 N.m) 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in 4.7 seconds, and a top speed of 270 km/h.
