Set up by Royal (Amiri) Decree in July 2003, the award-winning Etihad (the Arabic word for 'union') started commercial operations in November 2003, with Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, as the airline’s hub.

Etihad’s fleet of 66 aircraft operates more than 1,400 flights per week, serving an international network of 84 passenger and cargo destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and North America. Etihad Airways also holds equity investments in airberlin, Air Seychelles, Virgin Australia and Aer Lingus.

The airline seeks to reflect the best of 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 Airways has received a range of awards that reflect its position as the world’s leading premium airline brand, including ‘World’s Leading Airline’ at the World Travel Awards in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
