Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, started operations in November 2003 and has become one of the world’s fastest growing airlines. We have received a range of awards that reflect our commitment to service and hospitality, including ‘World’s Leading Airline’ at the World Travel Awards for eight consecutive years.
While our main business is flying passengers internationally, we also operate Etihad Cargo, Etihad Holidays, Etihad Engineering, Etihad Airport Services, as well as managing a global loyalty program and other aviation and non-aviation related businesses.
Etihad Airways’ vision is to be the best airline and travel company in the world. The airline seeks to reflect the best of modern Arabian hospitality - cultured, considerate, warm and generous - as well as enhance the prestige of Abu Dhabi as a centre of hospitality between east and west. Etihad is inspired by the values of the Emirati culture and benchmark against the world’s best hospitality establishments, not just other airlines. The airline has reimagined flying with world-class products and innovative service offerings such as the Inflight Chef, Food & Beverage Managers and Flying Nannies.
