etihad-EKarEtihad Airways and EKar, an innovative mobile app-based car rental company in the Middle East, announced a partnership, offering the airline’s employees exclusive access to the smart mobility solution.

EKar is an easy to use car-sharing platform that provides pay-as-you-go hourly and daily car rental from the comfort of a laptop or smartphone.

Etihad Airways is the first airline in the region to embrace smart car-sharing and rental as an added employee benefit.

Brand new Nissan vehicles provided by EKar, with each model holding a five-star crash safety rating, have been reserved exclusively for Etihad Airways. Parked at the airline’s accommodation buildings in Abu Dhabi, employees can easily reserve and unlock the cars using the EKar app and can drive anywhere within the UAE for AED 27 per hour.
