Etihad transfers F1 protected ‘Biosphere’ from Bahrain to Abu Dhabi

Etihad Airways has operated ten flights to transport the protected Formula 1 ‘biosphere’ from Manama, Bahrain to Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The Formula 1 management, teams, drivers and crew travelled to Abu Dhabi International Airport on 7th December and were transferred to Yas Marina Circuit ahead of this season’s F1 finale.

The airline operated a fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliner, Airbus A320 and A321 for the mission, with current team champions Mercedes flying on Etihad’s unique Boeing 787 Dreamliner featuring a Formula 1 themed livery.

The special livery was launched in 2018 and raises the profile of Abu Dhabi’s acclaimed Formula 1 across the Etihad network. In addition, Etihad Cargo operated five cargo flights transporting Formula 1 kit to the UAE capital.

The Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will take place on Sunday 13th December with practice sessions beginning on 11th December on the iconic F1 track at Yas Marina Circuit.
