Etihad Airways: Flying high on the journey to global superpower status

Etihad has grown revenues and profits, and increased operational measures such as load factor, cargo tonnage, and revenue passengers. Profit margins, however, remain a concern. Etihad is central to Abu Dhabi's economic plan to build 'a sustainable economy,' by reducing its reliance on oil income. Tourism is at the forefront of this drive and Etihad is the transport that will drive the industry.
