It has been an exceptionally busy week for Dave Walsh and all the team at Etihad Airways. In addition to announcing the airline’s one-millionth passenger on the Dublin to Abu Dhabi route at Dublin Airport yesterday morning, it was off to Croke Park for Dave and Louise Wheatley as they ably hosted the media for the first viewing in Ireland of the airline’s new global brand advertising campaign. Irish Travel Trade News is really impressed with the ad, which has the theme ‘The World is Our House, You are Our Guest’. Filmed in Abu Dhabi, Bangkok, Prague and Sydney, it is bound to receive considerable attention.
With a media event at Croke Park, there had to be a be some fun and a Puc Fada competition compered by Des Cahill of RTE was held on the pitch, where Dave Walsh’s golf swing obviously stood him in good stead.
