Etihad Boasts the Best Year Ever

Etihad Cargo remained on track to achieve its best-ever annual performance after carrying an all-time record 53,292 tonnes in November 2014.

The total uplift for 2014 at the freight division of Etihad Airways is expected to reach 570,000 tonnes, a year-onyear increase of 17 percent.

Strong market demand, the expansion of its global reach and the smooth handling operations at its hub in Abu Dhabi have already enabled the company to secure more than USD1 billion in revenue to-date.

Apart from its own and Etihad Airways’ expansion, Etihad Cargo also continues to benefit from the growth of its codeshare partners; a fact, that according to Kevin Knight, chief strategy and planning officer, Etihad Airways, means greater capacity utilisation and further development of the company’s charter business.
