Funeral company in deal with Etihad

Funeral services provider will help repatriate the remains of Muslims and non-Muslims alike from the UAE.

A funeral services provider will help repatriate the remains of Muslims and non-Muslims alike from the UAE, under a new deal with Etihad Airways.

Al Foah Funeral Services said it would coordinate repatriation by helping process paperwork through local authorities, preparing the deceased for transportation by air, and organising special packaging required for cremated remains.

More than 2,500 human remains are repatriated each year from Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
