Etihad Achieves Highest A380 Reliability

Etihad Airways’ Airbus A380 fleet recorded a 99.8 percent operational reliability in 2015; the highest level ever recorded by an airline in its first year of operating the jumbo jets. “This stellar performance is a result of the sheer hard work and commitment to excellence

of our engineering teams,” noted Jeff Wilkinson, senior vice president, technical, Etihad Airways.

“As Etihad Airways is flying the A380 with one of the highest rates of daily utilisation, with a typical turnaround time of only two hours, this achievement is all the more remarkable.”

He added that the success sets a new standard in excellence that the carrier aims to repeat with the introduction of the A350 to the Etihad Airways fleet in early 2018.
