Inside Mojito’s web3 partnership with Etihad Airways

June 4, 2024

As the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, Etihad Airways was launched just after the dawn of Y2K in 2003 following a royal decree issued by the late President, Sheikh Khalifa.

Founded with a vision to refine air travel through a new standard of luxury, its two-decade journey has transported passengers (and cargo) across North America, Asia, and, of course, the Middle East alongside forays into F1, soccer jerseys, stadiums, arenas, charitable organizations, and beyond.

All the while, they’ve continually raised the bar in luxury travel with such accolades as the sky’s first three-room suite, which is probably bigger than the NYC shoebox you spent the summer living in after college.

Bringing together the past, present, and future of the UAE — onchain

The ‘United in Time’ collection features a mix of digital and select physical pieces themed around the act of movement, form, sky, and the possibilities of a tech-forward future utopia. It also features some of the region’s most celebrated artists, including Diaa Allam, an international UAE-based artist celebrated for his coupling of Arabic calligraphy and live performances, and Amrita Sethi, one of the first NFT artists in the UAE.


Other artists include Khawla Abu Saleh, Mohammad Reza Domiriganji, Sneak Hotep, Rami Dibo, Kristel Bechara, and many more. Having commenced on April 15th, the artworks will be exhibited in the new Abu Dhabi Terminal A and Kempinski Mall of the Emirates for a period of three months.
